Engage your youngest learners in computer science.

Launch Pad engages your youngest learners through interactive games, activities, text books, and more. Some features include:

Block-Based Coding

Students as early as Kindergarten can learn computer science concepts. Students can:
Use inclusive characters and story development scripts to help express themselves through code.
Start getting comfortable with coding concepts through click-an- drag components.
Receive immediate feedback on their block-coding challenges so they can progress at their own pace.

Engaging Games, Puzzles, and Activities

Engage your students in coding with fun games, puzzles, activities, and more. Students can:
Learn coding concepts such as sequencing through puzzles and other games.
Start with block-coding and switch to JavaScript code when they are ready to advance in skill level.
Create their own puzzles that they can share with their classmates to drum up their own competition.

Intro to HTML

Begin introducing rigor and more advanced coding concepts like HTML at 3rd grade. Students can:
Navigate through an easy-to-use textbook that teaches them HTML through videos, challenges, activities, and more.
Work through their HTML course at their own pace with the help of an autograder, that grades their comprehension in real-time.
Challenge the concepts they’ve learned through games and activities.

Save time with a built-in autograder. The autograder will:
Automatically grade challenges, lessons, and projects in real-time.
Allow students to receive immediate feedback on challenges and assignments.
Give every teacher, whether they are new to CS or an expert, the ability to teach computer science

Typing Curriculum

Learn how to use the keyboard effectively for coding. Students can:
Play typing games that help them get used to keys that are used for coding.
Type as fast or as quickly as they want, to make it engaging and competitive.
Complete challenges and activities that help them see where they are making mistakes.

Cross-Curricular Content

Integrate computer science into Math, Science, and ELA classes. This cross-curricular content will:
Help students develop better Math, Science, and ELA comprehension through Launch Pad’s cross-curricular content.
Allow elementary schools to integrate CS into their Math, Science, and ELA classes.
Give teachers and paraprofessionals confidence in teaching computer science.

All of the content is fun and engaging for our students! Regarding the support and partnership, they are always on top of everything. Small issues are resolved quickly, and that is not typical with other EdTech companies.

If a friend has never coded before, I would tell them that Skill Struck is a very easy and fun way to begin learning. I would also tell them that Skill Struck has challenges that are a fun way of testing our own ability to problem solve.
