“You should be able to get started in Sprig with very little programming experience,” Hack Club organizers say of the gadget. “Even if you’re an expert, you should still be able to have fun. Sprig games are designed to be shared and hacked with friends. Each submitted game is easily viewable and editable in our gallery allowing people to learn and build the each other.”
“People learn best when they create things they care about,” says Hack Club, “which they can then share with others. This type of learning philosophy is called constructionism, and Sprig is a type of microworld. A microworld is an environment where you can experience programming by using it to express yourself.”
Those interested in trying out Sprig, whether to receive a free console or simply to experiment with its capabilities, can do so. on the Hack Club website; if you prefer to ride it yourself, hardware and software sources are available on GitHub under the permissive license of MIT.
