Description

BITSBOXBASIC

Learning to program is just like learning any language. The earlier you start, the easier it is. Since kid brains soak up languages like a sponge, they can use Bitsbox as soon as they can read and write. Bitsbox uses simple commands to create cool apps that really work! Most people learn hard things by imitation and repetition. With Bitsbox, kids learn to program by copying apps and making them their own. Each coding project includes easy to follow step by step instructions that result in an app or game that can be shared so kids can impress their friends and family.

 

What age is Bitsbox for?

Bitsbox is designed for kids 6-12 years in age.

 

How your kids engage with Bitsbox will depend on their age, of course. If your kiddo is 6 or 7, they may choose shorter projects and make simpler customizations. Older kids will do the projects faster and need less help.

 

Does Bitsbox allow for multiple siblings?

Yes! If your kids can share toys, they can share Bitsbox. Each kiddo can make their own coding account online for free, so they each have their own virtual tablet and coding space. They can then take turns with the app projects.

 

What kind of computer do I need?

Bitsbox works on any computer with a web browser. A Mac, Windows PC, Linux machine, or Chromebook works great. Bitsbox works inside a webpage and doesn't require any downloads. Even though it's theoretically possible for kids to do Bitsbox on a tablet or iPad, we'd recommend using a machine with a physical keyboard—typing a set of {} on an iPad is an ordeal, even for grownups.

 

How does it work?

  1. Kids look through the materials and pick an app. Every box comes with a mix of coding projects, ranging from simple to more advanced.
  2. Kids type the app into the Bitsbox website. Kids start with the code from the materials, then change it to make it their own.
  3. Kids use and share their apps on any mobile device. Bitsbox apps run on any computer, tablet, or phone with a web browser.
