started in summer of 2011, and the first public release was at Maker Faire in May 2012.
was originally designed as a replacement for OpenBlocks in App Inventor. Neil Fraser started the project with Quynh Neutron, Ellen Spertus and Mark Friedman as contributors.
comes with a basic set of blocks for common operations, but can be customized by adding more blocks. New blocks require a block definition and a generator. The definition describes the block's appearance and the generator describes the block's translation to executable code. There is an example program called Block Factory which makes writing the block definition easier by using
blocks to construct a new block.
Made with Code collaborated with Shapeways to allow girls to create their own customised bracelet. After designing the bracelet with

Yeti project allows users to create an animated Yeti with
programming language. The first step is to drag and insert the YETI block onto the work space, followed by the character design block. Select the fur and skin color of your Yeti, as well as the hand and feet sizes. Next, select the animation command from the various range of actions provided.
programming language and virtual instruments together to produce a string of beats. Users set the speed from a minimum of 30 to a maximum of 300 beats. The range of virtual instruments available include hi-hat, clave, cowbell, cymbal, tom, kick, snare and clap.
Accessorizer allow to accessorize (put accessories on) a selfie with
programming language. The first step is selecting an image, either by snapping a picture or selecting the available characters including Dorothy, Rose, Smoosh, Raul and Blanche. The next step is to position the accessories on top of the character or image. Accessories include the eyes, mouths, shirts, hats and wigs.
Made with Code revolves primarily around providing online activities for young girls to learn coding on its website. Many of Made with Code’s projects use
programming, a visual editor that writes programs by assembling individual blocks. Step by step instructions are provided to guide users. Along the way, works may either be discarded or saved and downloaded.
Dance Visualiser mixes dance with code by modelling a visualiser that mirrors a dancer’s motions. Through the application of
programming, users track the different parts such as the head, chest, hip and four limbs of the dancer’s body. After inputting the necessary details, a customized visualization is generated accordingly.
Code For Life is an educational initiative which aims to provide tools and materials to help teachers deliver the computing elements of the UK National Curriculum. As well as a range of teaching packs, Code For Life has developed "Rapid Router:" a browser-based game aimed at children aged 5–11 that uses the visual programming language "
" to teach the basic concepts of programming.
RoboBlockly is a web-based robot simulation environment for learning coding and math. Based on
, it uses a simple puzzle-piece interface to program virtual Linkbot, Lego Mindstorms NXT and EV3, as well as to draw and animate for beginners to learn robotics, coding, math, science, and art. Blocks in RoboBlockly can be executed in debug mode step-by-step. All math activities in RoboBlockly are Common Core State Standards Mathematics compliant.
Code For Life's first programming game, "Rapid Router", teaches children the basic concepts of programming by having them guide a van through a series of increasingly complicated routes, giving them feedback on the route taken and the algorithm used. Players first learn concepts using the visual programming language
before learning to translate those concepts into Python, a popular general-purpose language, to prepare them for further learning.
GIF lets users make a custom animation with a background and a series of frame. With the
programming language, four images can be constructed which will then cycle so as to form an animation. The first step is to select the background, which includes characters such as Licky Ricky, Mayday Mary, Puss in Moon Boots, Purple Mess, Flappy the Uni-Horn, Tonsil Tammy, Bucky, Long Lidia, Permy and Mr. Hula Hips. The next step is to select frame(s), which includes various shapes and colors.
Open Blocks is distributed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Scheller Teacher Education Program (STEP) and is derived from master's thesis research by Ricarose Roque. Professor Eric Klopfer and Daniel Wendel of the Scheller Program supported the distribution of Open Blocks under an MIT License. Open Blocks visual programming is closely related to StarLogo TNG, a project of STEP, and Scratch, a project of the MIT Media Lab's Lifelong Kindergarten Group. App Inventor 2 replaced Open Blocks with
, a blocks editor that runs within the browser.
NEPO is a free open source meta programming language that can be used by students, scholars, teachers, and other interested persons within the Open Roberta Lab. NEPO translates to New Easy Programming Online (or simply OPEN read backwards). NEPO is how we call our graphical programming language and its coupled hardware connection layer. NEPO uses the freely available
library. In addition within NEPO there are additional functionalities and improvements have been adapted for Open Roberta. The programming paradigm of NEPO is inspired by Scratch from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A NEPO block always represents and encapsulates a certain robot functionality. A blocks feature set can easily be recognized through the associated block category, for example »sensors«. Programming with NEPO follows a simple principle. The blocks are interconnected and will be executed by the robot according to their order. This principle is called »sequential operation«.
Activity commenced in the Miocene with basaltic andesites and dacitic ignimbrites and ended in the late Quaternary with basaltic andesites in form of cinder cones. K-Ar dates of 12 mya and 8.0 ± 0.3 have been found at Cerro Negro. Lava flows found on Escorial and Cerro Corrida de Cori are the latest volcanic events and post-date the hydrothermal alteration; one date from Escorial is 0.342 ± 0.025 mya. Most Escorial lava flows head southwest. These Escorial lava flows are accompanied by andesitic blocks from possibly Vulcanian explosive activity. East of Corrida de Cori range a cinder cone accompanied by a much smaller vent was constructed on top of older eruption products and generated a lava flow that descended towards Salar Rio Grande. This cone may be of Holocene age, considering the appearance of the
lava flows. Present day geothermal activity is found at Lastarria and in form of fumarole spires, mud vents and warm springs at Escorial. Some of these originate by the summit lava flow of Cerro Escorial.
During Computer Science Education Week from December 9 to December 15, 2013, Code.org launched the "Hour of Code Challenge" on its website to teach computer science to school students, enticing them to complete short programming tutorials. The Hour of Code involved getting people to write short snippets of code to achieve pre-specified goals using
, a visual programming language of a similar flavor as Logo. The initiative had been announced about two months in advance and at the time of launch, the initiative was supported by former United States President Barack Obama as well as executives from technology companies such as Microsoft and Apple Inc. About 20 million people participated and over 600 million lines of code had been written. The Hour of Code also offered participation gifts to some of the schools involved, such as a set of fifty laptops or a conference call with one a tech “luminary” like Gates or Dorsey. The crowdfunding effort for Hour of Code received the highest amount of funding ever raised on Indiegogo. By October 2014, about forty million students had taken the Hour of Code class, and a second Hour of Code was held in December 2014. That year, locations for Hour of Code lessons included Apple retail stores.
