What I am
I teach kids how to code by sending crazy fun app-building projects in the mail every month. Each box has a kid-friendly theme and introduces a new computer science concept. The projects and challenges build on each other, so the longer kids code with me, the more they learn!
How I work
Kids use the projects in the box to code apps on the Bitsbox website. They start by coding from the examples provided and progress quickly to inventing their own apps! Once coded, their apps work on real phones and tablets.
My founders are both dads and former Google employees: Scott and Aidan. In 2014, Scott’s 7-year-old daughter asked him what he did at work. Explaining his job as an engineer inspired Scott to create a tool that taught kids type-based coding. Today, the Bitsbox team is made of 10 men and women, with backgrounds in coding, fine arts, biology, theater, graphic design, engineering, architecture, business, and literature. Who says coding is only for computer scientists?
