Code for Life is a non–profit initiative that delivers free, open source games and supporting teaching materials that help primary and secondary school students learn computing.
Our vision is to give everyone the ability to shape the future of technology.
In order to achieve our mission, we are working on two games:
Rapid Router: aimed at KS1 and KS2 students, the game makes learning to code easy and great fun. Using Blockly and basic Python programming, students can advance through the levels to become an Ocado delivery hero. The game was released in September 2014 and has over 120,000 users.
AI:MMO: aimed at KS3 and KS4 students, the game is a multiplayer, time-travelling adventure, which will take students to the next level on their coding journey by introducing artificial intelligence concepts and more advanced Python programming.
Our games and associated teaching resources are using feedback from teachers and students through focus groups focusing on the gameplay, learning concepts, general design, website accessibility and user interfaces.
Right now, only the Rapid Router game is opened for translations - but after trying it out we will add more projects.
Most of the in-game sentences in the project are targeted to children.
