Summary note
This project sought to leverage the use of graphical programming languages to teach textual programming skills. By using graphical tools to teach programming languages, users are able to learn fundamental programming concepts without needing to memorize code syntax. To accomplish this goal I created a web application called SnapPy that uses the graphical programming language Snap to teach Python. SnapPy's main programming environment is an extension of Snap and seeks to illuminate the correspondence between Snap blocks and Python code.
