In recent years, computational thinking has become one of the core literacy of information technology in primary and secondary schools. Visual programming is also recognized by the public. Based on visual programming tools, this study explores the impact of visual programming on pupils' computational thinking through quasi-experimental research, in order to provide reference for visual programming education in primary and secondary schools. Through analysis, it is found that visual programming can promote the ability of primary school students to calculate thinking.
