If you are looking for educational software for kids that teaches basic computer programming skills, you should go for BYOB. It was developed by Jens Monig at MioSoft Corporation while presented by the University of California, Berkeley, enabling students to build their own programs.

This software is a new version of Scratch with extra features and improvements for students. As a high school or college student, you can avail the special features like lists, products, and continuations. Moreover, you can do various things, from creating sprites to the combination of blocks as a fun game.



BYOB is an offshoot of Scratch that teaches children the basics of programming language through a drag-and-drop fun game using blocks as rules and conditions.
  • Students can learn basic designing and computer program-building skills.
  • With a user-friendly interface and simple functions, students can learn basic programming effectively.
  • For the stories or scripts you are creating, you can create sprites that are the characters or objects of the script.
  • You can use the default costume for sprites or edit it to your liking.
  • It provides a library of costumes from which you can choose the one for your characters or sprites.
  • BYOB provides various building blocks for different purposes, including looks, motion, sounds, pen, control, sensing, operators, and variables.
  • Each block has many color-coded elements that you can use to make different scenarios.

Besides, the blocks are assigned different functions for different purposes. The motion block is used to move sprites, while the looks button is used for costumes. In the same way, sounds enable you to use all types of sound effects for each scenario. A control button helps you navigate the different elements easily.

The operator and variable buttons or blocks help the users to insert things like mathematical operations. After creating and managing each thing, you can press the save button and run your scenario to check what you have created. So, with the user-friendly interface, this programming software will help you to learn and have fun while creating scenarios.
