Hopscotch Back To School Challenge!

These are a great way to develop coding skills, whether you’re a seasoned Hopscotch veteran or are just starting out. The in-app tutorials can be found by tapping the “Learn” button that you can find at the bottom of the screen when going to your drafts.

For the challenge, you can pick one of the following three different tutorials and levels to recreate

Make a sine and cosine Orbit (Science) #btsorbit
