What others are saying about CodeSpace
Laura Collins, Discovery Middle School
CodeSpace:Python is a hit with my students; they love it! They come racing into my room each day, get out their assigned box and are immediately ready to work. ( I bought the photo box set like you had at the training for the Micro:bits - they work great).
When it is time for me to take the students to lunch many days we are late because they keep begging me "Just one more minute...just one more minute" as they are working on their activities. They are so engaged that they literally don't want to leave. It is a joy seeing my students so excited to learn!

I finally got a chance to bust out the microbits and the kids "jumped" right into Jumpstart to Python. My students who are new to computing are taking to it well, but I even have a couple of students who know Java from AP CSA and they are loving the experience of physical computing while learning Python. Firia labs has something for everyone ... the perfect low-floor-high-ceiling curriculum. I'm going to try to get some $ for some CodeBots next.
As a homeschooling mom, I'd heard that teaching kids to code was important, but I was intimidated because I knew virtually nothing about coding. Codespace made it possible for my son to teach himself to code and for me to learn along with him. Thanks, Firia Labs!

My students love learning code. CodeSpace teaches them an actual computer language in a fun and engaging way. It is the project we were wanting to extend our code.org learning. Within the first hour of using CodeSpace, the students were writing code to create shapes. By the end of the second day, the students wished our principal "Happy Birthday!" on their microbit.

I am so impressed with the thoroughness of your product. The students this morning would raise their hands and then continue reading so that by the time I got to them, they had figured it out.
Speaking of a specific student: "He has completely opened up because of Codespace. Talks a lot now. Always smiling."

One of the hardest things to teach students is perseverance. A lot of my students just want everything handed to them. With CodeSpace, not only is perseverance embedded, but the students WANT to work through their problems. They don't think of it as work at all. When the bell rings and it's time to go, they groan and ask if they can stay and keep working. All my students, from the brightest, most hardworking, to the struggling students, come to class eager to work in CodeSpace. It's self-guided, so they can work at their own pace. When they figure out something on their own, they celebrate. When they have a question, they lean over and ask a friend to explain it to them. It's teaching those intangible skills that our students need for the workplace.Amber Merrill, Middle School CS teacher
