What is Blackbird School?
Computer programming made accessible. We are a team of educators and software engineers that have developed a platform to make a future in programming truly accessible to everyone.
Blackbird School introduces coding in a practical, understandable way, and keeps you coding with engaging curriculum and practice. You will come away with the foundation and intermediate skills you need to engage with coding and, ultimately, level the playing field in tech.
Who is Blackbird School for?
Our curriculum is developed to get you creating games and animations quickly so you stay engaged and feel successful. Anyone interested in programming age 11 and up will feel right at home on Blackbird School.
While we think anyone can benefit from our tool, our platform has been developed to introduce brand new coders to the world of text-based programming.
What makes us different
Our platform also features a powerful debugging tool that allows you to move line by line through your code to dive deeper into how it works.
In Blackbird School you will learn how to create animated programs and games. Along the way, you will learn the foundations of computer programming: variables, conditional statements, data structures, objects, loops, arrays and more.
Our lessons are developed to keep your learning momentum going! We believe ‘practice makes programmers’ and we have lots of opportunities to apply what you’re learning along the way. You’ll be guided through 10 stages of learning that each conclude with a challenge lesson and a menu of guided projects to help you practice what you’ve learned.
