Google developed the Grasshopper application to make coding more approachable for the beginners. The application will be highly beneficial to novices inclined towards building their own websites. The multi-functionality of this application includes weekly alerts and daily notifications. This learn-to-code mobile application targets beginners and kids who want to engage in coding education in the early years of their lives. Grasshopper is as a fun application which is available for free in the Google Play Store. The application works with the help of puzzles to make learning fun for the young learners.
Google’s incubator works with the aim to develop Google’s next breakthrough product by focusing on multiple “side projects”. It helps the company to retain engineers who might resign to pursue their own dream projects for startups. The team at Area 120 uniquely developed Grasshopper. The application derives its name from an early pioneer in programming, named Grace Hopper. The application is a result of years of toil and effort put in by the experts at Area 120.
Comprehensive Courses to Suit the Intellect of Kids
The first course of the application focuses on the fundamentals of coding and incorporates a diverse terminology. It comprises variables, functions, strings, arrays, conditionals, objects and operators. The second course teaches learners to draw shapes with the help of the 3D library. By the time a student reaches the third course, the level of complexity increases manifold. Notably, the increasing level of difficulty helps learners to create complex functions in 3D. The design of each of the courses is in the form of a series of quizzes and puzzles. The difficulty level of the courses increases as the learner passes from one level to another.
