Hopscotch Raises $1.2M to Teach Kids to Code

HOPSCOTCH: $1.2 million to Hopscotch in a seed round from Resolute Ventures, Collaborative Fund, Kapor Capital and others, reports TechCrunch. The NYC-based startup offers an iPad app that teaches kids how to code with a "visual programming language like Scratch, Alice, or Blockly." The app is currently free, and the company hopes to monetize later through in-app purchases. Hopscotch was founded in 2011 and has been used in over 1.5 million projects in over 100 countries.
