Programming Resources


Rapid Router

Rapid Router is an online game to teach Programming. Starting at Level 1 it takes you through step by step instructions, building up more complex instructions to mean the objectives. This looks very similar to Scratch, but is step by step, rather than free programming.

You can sign your school up and create logins so that pupils can save their progress.
