Microsoft MakeCode is a free, open-source platform for creating engaging computer science learning experiences that support a progression path into real-world programming. From program-building simulators that teach students to debug their own code, to full-featured JavaScript editors, MakeCode lessons prepare students for real-world computing tasks and careers.

Add computer science to your curriculum by integrating MakeCode resources with your assignments in Microsoft Teams! With MakeCode as an attachable resource, it's easier than ever to create tasks that help students learn and develop relevant computing skills.
