PrimaryCode (https://sites.google.com/view/primarycode-v3-english/inicio?pli=1) is a Java stand-alone application to introduce programming concepts to children on Primary Education. It focuses on four main concepts: sequence, input and output, conditionals and loops. It allows many types of interaction with it: normal use of the mouse, or the use of fruits or clay with makey makey (http://makeymakey.com/about/) which kids love.
