About CodeMonkey

CodeMonkey is a leading educational game-based environment where millions of students learn how to code in real programming languages

CodeMonkey offers an engaging and enjoyable curriculum for schools, after-school clubs and camps as well as self-paced online courses to learn coding at home.

Teaching Kids to Code

Computer programming helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. As your students solve problems through writing real code, they will develop 21st century skills like multiple-step thinking, perseverance, critical thinking and analytical thinking skills.

Discover How Fun Teaching Children Computer Programming Can Be!


Teachers are not required to have any programming experience when teaching coding to kids with CodeMonkey. The games are accompanied by detailed lesson plans with both online and unplugged activities. Teachers also have exclusive access to a dashboard where they can track student progress and achievements and display different students’ solutions to the entire class for discussion.


In CodeMonkey, students learn coding in a gamified environment. In Coding adventure, they will program an adorable monkey to get all its bananas back from the greedy gorilla who stole them. As students progress in the game, they will meet different friends like our trusty turtle, who will help them in their journey as they face more complex challenges to solve. Each solution is checked and graded automatically, giving learners instant “star-score” feedback.


From the very first level in CodeMonkey, students start to write code in a real-world programming language. Depending on the course, you will teach either Python or CoffeeScript, a modern open-source programming language that compiles to JavaScript, and similarly to JavaScript. CoffeeScript is used in the industry primarily for web applications. Through the CodeMonkey program, students will learn advanced Computer Science concepts such as loops, variables, functions, conditions and more.


CodeMonkey is designed as a classroom resource with fully-guided coding lessons plans. CodeMonkey’s coding curriculum fosters the development of executive functioning skills, such as problem solving and planning, as well as geometric and mathematical thinking.
