New coding game: Run Marco!

Posted by SM Bruner on

This week is National Computer Science Education Week, and we have a great new resource to help your students participate in the Hour of Code movement.

Run Marco! introduces students to programming concepts such as sequence of commands, different iterations, and conditional blocks. Students will also practice guided and unguided orientation, pattern recognition, and problem solving skills. Higher game levels introduce variables and functions.

Students guide the main character through each level-puzzle by giving him instructions in the form of the standard visual programming language.

Check out our Run Marco! Lesson Ideas to learn how you can integrate this game in your instruction, or find more technology and coding games featured on GameUp. Happy coding!
