Google's new project teaches kids how to code

Google is making coding fun for kids.

Kids, get ready to code!

Google is rolling out a new hands-on way to get the next generation of kids developing code. Project Bloks, designed by coding experts and educators, uses parts that look like blocks which connect together to form a Brain Board. When you assemble it in different ways, the board can control things like a robot (that can draw!), light bulbs and a wireless speaker. Pretty cool, right?

The project is still in the early stages and being tested by small groups, but the goal is to expand and provide an exciting way for kids to learn to code. We love it!
