CodeBlox

Teach kids to code through blocks!.

Programming has traditionally been confined to a written form. Because of this, coding is mostly only accessible to text-based learners. We hope to solve this dilemma by liberating coding from its written medium through the use of tangible building blocks. Kids will be able to connect these smart blocks together and build real programs that control a real robot! This will better engage visual and kinesthetic learners and allow children to be introduced to the field of programming at a younger age. Additionally, by freeing the process of programming from the personal computer's screen, we will make coding more collaborative and exciting.
