How to Use Code Avengers in Your Homeschool

Code Avengers is an interactive website for K-12 students which helps build key 21-century skills including computer programming, critical thinking, and problem-solving, through the use of story-based, engaging online courses and activities. Younger students learn how to logically sequence events, create playable games, and model real situations. Students transition to learning programming languages, such as JavaScript and Python, and web languages such as HTML5 and CSS3, or build their theoretical knowledge with our Computer Science and Design courses. Used by 2 million+ students around the world.
