Foo Studio is an large expansion to The Foos – created at the ed-tech startup I co-founded, codeSpark. In Foo Studio, kids aged 5 and up design and program their own games. The goal is to allow kids to practice the programming skills they learned in the original Foos puzzle levels.
Starting with a side-scrolling platformer template, kids place avatars, coins, enemies, blocks, stickers and more on a 2D grid. Then everything can be programmed – the characters, blocks, and collectibles!
After programming and testing their games, kids can share their creations with a worldwide community of kids programmers right inside the app. We’ve already had over 1 million games created and 10 millions games played just in the first 2 months of launch!
