Learn Real Code, Make Real Things.
If you're new to coding, you're entering a whole new universe, which can be exciting....and a little daunting. That's why we provide you with a ton of example code and clear project instructions.
Everything you'll build can be used as a building block for something more complex. First, watch this video to see our coding kits in action. Then, keep reading below to learn how it all works.
How Our Coding Kits Work
Let's Start Coding teaches coding to kids using electronic kits, real code examples and step-by-step guides. It's easier to learn by taking something apart than starting from scratch. That's why we created hundreds of lines of example code to help you.

CODING SUCCESS WITH OUR BEGINNER PROGRAMMING KITS
"The difference with and without the kits was night and day. Coding is usually difficult for them.
With the kits they had something that they could control."
DONNA, PROFESSOR - INTRODUCTION TO PROGRAMMING
"I have been trying to get him interested in coding and the immediacy and feedback you get from
a physical system is great for kids."
L., PARENT OF A CODING BEGINNER
"One of the most beneficial things about this kit is that I'm able to put it in a little box and keep it with me. This makes for a very productive time when I have an extra 20-30 minutes to tinker."
BECKY, SOFTWARE ENGINEER
