About Code Kingdoms

Code Kingdoms is an online platform which teaches kids how to code.

Used in 50+ countries, we have over one million kids using our coding technology.

The company has raised over $3 million in venture capital. Our educational partners include the BBC, Minecraft & Roblox.

We've designed the most effective coding environment alongside complementary content to enhance children's learning in Computing. Primarily, we want to ensure kids are building real software applications where our technology guides from the very first steps of programming. We start with drag-and-drop code, representing real languages such as Java, Lua and JavaScript, before transitioning into text-based programming professional engineers use.

In partnership with the BBC, we extended our reach to every secondary school in the UK in early 2016. Our most popular consumer products allows children to program Minecraft and Roblox, allowing players to create their own games in a little as 5 minutes.

Our education outreach team serves a global network of technology camps and schools bringing our platform to traditional educational settings. In conjunction with the most prestigious educators, we offer inspirational classroom experiences which translate to students continuing to learn with us at home.
