The Root® Coding App is packed with lessons, projects and activities to begin your hands-on problem solving with Root right out of the box. From pre-readers to hackers. Root grows with your child by seamlessly switching the coding interface from graphical blocks for non-readers to full text for advanced coders.

  • Expresses itself. Through drawing, music and movement, Root brings coding into the physical world, so it isn’t just a concept, it’s a reality.
  • The Root Coding App. Through guided lessons and projects, children and adults alike can learn the fundamentals of coding and explore more advanced concepts as their skill increases.
  • Games & Challenges. Built-in games, art projects and logic challenges pack hours of fun for any interest.
  • Intuitive coding interface. Root is the only coding companion that grows with your child by seamlessly switching the coding interface from graphical blocks for non-readers to full text for advanced coders.
  • Root climbs whiteboards. Don’t let gravity get in the way. Whether demonstrating a concept in the front of a classroom or playing on the family message center, Root turns coding on its side.
