Let's Start Coding Base Kit

Description:

All the fun of coding and circuits. None of the headache. Let's Start Coding has combined easy-to-use electronics, online lessons and videos, and example code to bring your kids the best way to start learning real code. Parents, you don't have to be an expert to get them started; kids start with our pre-written code and 'tinker', experimenting with the code and trying out our challenges.

The Let's Start Coding resources have been designed by educators and coders to teach the core concepts in a way that engages kids, challenges their minds, and introduces them to core coding concepts while they have fun! Our team has spent hundreds of hours leading workshops, camps, and classes through the beginning of their coding journey, so the method is proven and based on feedback from real beginners.

Finally, an introduction to real, typed coding that doesn't require textbooks, in-person tutors, or searching for high-quality information online. If you really want your kids to get ahead with your coding skills, the Let's Start Coding kits are the all-in-one product you're looking for.

The learning process is built by educators and coders who have researched and designed a pathway for kids to learn real coding 'from the ground up'.

Our goal is for kids to learn by tinkering and experimenting, discovering how concepts work by puzzling over them. As kids' curiosity grows around what they can create with these simple electronics, they'll drive their own learning process, using our lessons and projects as a guide.
