HopscotchSamantha John introduces the Sharks to Hopscotch, her app that teaches kids how to code, in Shark Tank episode 1212. John learned to code as a senior in college and loved it. When she became a parent, she wanted a way to teach kids how to code, so she created the app to do it. Along with her team, she built a fun, interactive platform aimed at 6-16 year olds.

The way it works is kids use simple code to create games and artwork. The app guides them each step of the way. Once they’re done coding, they can share their game with other kids on the platform. Anyone can play the shared games, too.

The app is free for a week, then it’s $9.99 a month or $80 for a year. There is a free version, but you won’t have access to premium editing features or the ability to upload your own artwork. The company’s mission is “to create a programming environment that lets kids explore powerful ideas while making real software.” They’re looking for a Shark to join them in teaching kids to code.

A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Hopscotch will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
