The Finch Robot works with Snap!, Scratch, Python, and Java. These programming languages range from easy drag-and-drop languages appropriate for kindergarteners to industry-standard, text-based programming environments.
On our portal select the device and software language you will use and you will be taken to an installation guide, step-by-step lessons, and project ideas for each programming language.
To give you time to test out programming languages and develop your curriculum, we send every first time loan recipient a test Finch a few months in advance of the loan period. You can use this Finch to try out different programming languages (and work out any potential IT glitches with your district’s computer systems). This Finch is yours to keep after the loan program is over!
