Most of the projects for the Blocklyprop Starter Kit are
very interactive which makes this a very interesting and
engaging set of tutorials. Kids will not get bored by trying
to type a lot of syntax while learning to code.
A statement from Parallax’s website says “Parallax’s
BlocklyProp is the most complete visual programming
environment available for physical computing in education.
We started by creating a self-scaling infrastructure using
Amazon Web Services (AWS). This allows hundreds of
classes to use the same system concurrently. Next, we
coded the blocks to support the most popular Parallax
Having spent over a week doing the projects made for
the starter kit and programming several other robots with
Blocklyprop, I can honestly say I truly enjoy using this
language. It is intuitive and uses program logic without the
hassle of trying to get the syntax right. It has the look and
feel of C programming in a drag and drop format instead
of hours of typing and typos!
