Parents looking to help their children learn how to code might be interested in a new system that has been created to offer monthly coding projects designed specifically for children called Bitsbox.
The Bitsbox system has launched over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise $45,000 to help the idea go into production and has already raised over $30,000 in just the first few days of the campaign lauching.
If the campaign is successful Bitsbox will provide a free website where children can code applications for real mobile devices. While subscribing to the website will provide your children with packages offering new programming and coding projects every month.
The Bitsbox coding projects have been designed for children as young as seven years old, although five-year-olds have also been using the kits as well say Bitsbox creators. Watch the video below to learn more about the unique coding educational system for kids.
“Kids play with Bitsbox by coding apps that work on real phones and tablets. You can think of Bitsbox as a two-part learning system:
The free Bitsbox website provides each kid with a virtual tablet that runs the apps they build. The tablet is on the left and their code is on the right. To run an app on a real device, they scan the QR code on the computer screen. Zap! That’s all there is to it.
Bitsbox subscribers get a monthly box shipped to their home. It’s filled with dozens of new app projects that re-ignite kids’ interest in coding every few weeks. Kids love getting physical stuff in the mail—Bitsbox uses that excitement to help them keep learning.”
