App of the Week – Hour of Code Edition

This week is the Hour of Code. At some point you will all be meeting with Mrs. Falcone to try your hand at coding. If you want to try something before you meet with her, or if you find you really like coding and want a travel version, there’s Lightbot.


The Lightbot One Hour Coding is a free app available on both iOS and Android. The point is very simple. Use the commands to create a program that has a robot walk to and light up certain tiles. It’s easy. It’s fun. The robot is cute. And the game helps you where you make a mistake. The free version features 18 puzzle levels to work through.

If you really like it, you may want to try the full version of the app, which is $2.99 (iOs and Android). The object is still the same, but features 50 levels to work through.
