If you’re looking for a fun way to teach kids coding, then osmo is a great option. This innovative company creates educational games that interact with actual hand held pieces & an iPad to bring them to life (no WiFi needed for game play). Their unique digital-physical STEM educational games are award winning & are perfect for kids ages 5 and up.

Osmo’s coding starter kit is an excellent way to introduce kids to coding and it’s very easy to use. The coding games teach kids to use a sequence of physical blocks that they stack together in order to code a character on the screen. The games have different levels of difficulty and children can progress as they learn. The coding kit comes with an iPad stand and a special top piece that slides over the front-facing camera of the tablet. The top piece has a mirror that can be flipped up or down to switch the tablet between landscape and portrait view. The base can also fit an iPhone in place of the iPad.

The osmo coding starter kit comes with the coding games Coding Awbie, Coding Jam and Coding Duo. These games enable kids to become modern supercoders by turning their iPad into a hands-on coding tool. The coding games teach kids how to use the physical coding blocks to control a game character on the screen and encourage creativity and problem-solving.

The osmo coding starter kits are a little expensive, but there’s nothing else quite like them on the market. They are a rare combination of fun and education and offer the potential to help kids stay ahead in an increasingly tech-savvy world.
