Kano Codes for Kids - Show Notes

Kano Codes for Kids

Saturday Feb 24, 2018 (00:03:54)


Kano's mission is to encourage people, particularly children, to see computers not as unchangeable appliances but as tools to be made, shaped, coded and shared. Their kits plug together bits, boards, buttons and cables to make individual and personalised computers. Joanna gets to the heart of the matter with Todd and the Pixel Kit.

Kano's approach is to challenge each young developer into programming simple apps that achieve technical goals. Using Kano's development tools, Kano Code, it's really easy to build programs as the tools come with code building blocks for things like displaying an emoji or responding to noise via a microphone. It's very easy to quickly produce something that's fun and keeps children interested.

The Pixel Kit is available now for just under $80 from both online shops and major retail stores.
