In December, PBS KIDS released its first coding app, called PBS KIDS ScratchJr, designed for kids ages 5 to 8. With the app, kids can create their own interactive stories and games featuring their favorite characters from Wild Kratts, Nature Cat, WordGirl and Peg + Cat.
By snapping together colorful programming blocks, children can make characters move, jump, dance and sing. In the process, kids learn to solve problems, design projects and express themselves creatively.
Download the app for free on the App Store and Google Play.
