Ocado Technology's Code for Life initiative has been developed to help teachers deliver the new curriculum, so they can inspire the next generation of computer scientists.
Rapid Router marks the first step in this journey. It is a free, comprehensive Key Stage 1 and lower Key Stage 2 teaching resource and web application, designed for primary schools.
Built on 'Blockly', an easy-to-use visual programming language that's similar to Scratch, Rapid Router enables teachers to monitor and manage individual pupil progress and identify where more support is required.
Most of the in-game sentences in the project are targeted to children.
