Coding has become one of the most important job skills. The demand for professionals with high-quality coding skills is expected to be continuously growing in the future across almost every industry.
Preparing children from an early age and encouraging them to develop this highly-important skill, has become a mission for many companies. A lot of children-friendly education projects focus on teaching kids how to code in the most comprehensive way.
Some of these projects are making their first steps with the help of crowdfunding. Here we keep our focus on three code-learning kits for children that have turned to crowdfunding campaigns to turn their projects into reality.
Algobrix is one of the most successful crowdfunding projects that aims to teach children how to code. In its essence, Algobrix is a comprehensive code learning game for children in the age from 5 to 13. It teaches kids in a comprehensive way to code by guiding them through the steps of programming with the help of the movement of a robot.
Algobrix is an awesome combination of robots, building blocks and 3D puzzles, which makes the learning process much more fun for the children.
The learning kit was very well-received by the backers, as the campaign raised $1,153,514 by 3,696 backers, tremendously surpassing its target of $50,000 USD.
Etkin Bot is created and designed with the purpose to be used in coding, robotics, electronic and do-it-yourself training projects in private and public schools, private courses and workshops within the scope of STEM training program.
The training kit is designed with built-in User Button, Reset Button, Buzzer, USB Input, RGB Led, Warning Leds, Line Tracking Sensors and Development Pin Sets.
In addition to the built-in features, all the robotic sensors needed for robotics coding training like image, sound, color, heat, light and accelerometer can be used on the Etkin Bot via development pins.
The project is currently in a preparation phase on Arikovani. You are able to give your support here.
Kodris Studio aims to help children between 8 to 16 years old to gain algorithm development skills and to learn the coding language Python by using text and block base. The platform is easy-to-use, making it possible for the children to practice the knowledge and develop their own apps and games with Kodris Developer.
Designed for primary and secondary school students, Kodris Game allows the kids to put their Python programming language knowledge into practice and create their own games. The team behind the project has given to the children that use the platform the motto: “We have played enough games, now it’s time to develop our own game.”
Kodris is currently in a preparation phase on Arikovani. To learn more about the project and support its crowdfunding endeavor by giving your feedback, visit its page here.
