17
Codeacademy.comGrades 4-12
18
AgentSheetsGrades 4-5Scalable Game Design (University of Colorado) AgentSheets and AgentCubes does cost though I am not sure how much since if you attend their summer training you are given the software. Scalable Game Design will be at ISTE 2015 - I think it is a Saturday or Sunday workshop. The summer training for this year is still in Colorado, but I think they are bring their program to NYC for next summer. material
incorporates computational thinking patterns along with the video game programming
19
Google CS First ProgramGrades 4-8Students learn by watching videos and code using Scratch; all videos, scripts, agendas, and other club materials are provided by Google. Great afterschool program
20
Khan Academy: Hour of CodeGrades 4-8Hour of drawing, hour of webpages, hour of databases
21

27
Alice 2Grades 6-8If you go to Carnegie Mellon for the Alice training. They give you "Learning to Program with Alice" Third Edition to use with your class. Lower grade level should be able to work on Ch 1-3. Methods, parameters and inheritance are found in Ch 4. Grade 7-8 would work on Chapter 6-8 If/Else, Loops, and While statements.  Some info on dreating your own 3D models with Alice: http://www.aliceprogramming.net/models/
28
KidsRubyGrades 6-8Download program at www.kidsruby.com. Learn Ruby programming. Has a Raspberry Pi version.
29
AgentCubesgrades 7-12Both AgentSheets and AgentCubes run with JAVA, but students don't have to use any code. AgentSheets use agents depictation that the students create or download. Then they control the behaviors of the agents by adding conditions and action to the If/Then statements. I used this in my Programming Concepts class. Students start with a simple game like Maze Craze, or Frogger than you add on Journey, or PacMan. All games can be tied back to many different computational thinking patterns. There is also some math involved in the games. Example: Students add a "once every ? second" and "% of chance" condition to the tunnel that is generating the trucks. This makes the game either more or less challenging.
