Bitsbox

Bitsbox teaches kids to code by delivering insanely fun app-building projects in the mail every month. Kids code their projects on the Bitsbox website and their apps work on any device with a web browser. Bitsbox aims to be the friendliest way for kids to learn to become programmers—even if they want to be doctors, firefighters, or fairy princesses when they grow up.  Learning to code is just like learning any other language; the earlier you start, the easier it is. Bitsbox works best for kids ages 6-12.
