Instant Feedback

Object Oriented

Learn how to think like a coder. Learn about objects, data types, events and more.

Code Creativity

Coding isn't just about arbitrary numbers and crazy symbols. It's about critical thinking and creativity.

Gaming or Coding

Beta blurs the lines between when you are playing and creating. Coding should always be this fun.

Friendly Errors

Beta is your friend. No more rude geeky computer language that you don't understand.

Workshops and Classes

Beta is designed to support self-driven learning. Through their relationship with Beta, students will engage STEM and computer science concepts in a fun way. While Beta can be played alone, it is best experienced in a community! Our curriculum provides educators with the structure needed to unleash the programmer within their students. Learn More

Community

Team Beta has spent the last year teaching people how to design games from scratch using Beta, across the US and internationally. The team has hosted its own game jams with hundreds of attendees, and worked with organizations such as the National Society of Black Engineers, NYC Lab School, Reboot Stories, Black Girls Code, and more.
