Transform your child’s tablet into a hands-on coding adventure. Designed for ages 5–10, the Osmo Coding Starter Kit builds coding skills in progression with 3 hands-on learning games. Watch your child learn to code as they connect colourful blocks of code in the physical world to chart the adventure on their screen.
When it comes to additional learning opportunities for our children, parents can often think that X, Y or Z is a great idea, however, the child can find it a chore and can be unwilling to get involved with the activity. One of the ways we have found to engage the children with learning activities is by selecting something that is based on an area of interest to them. In Tigger case, he has a very logical, problem solving and computing lead personality, which is why the Osmo Coding Starter Kit was something I knew would grab his interest.

What Tigger Thought…
Having previously utilised the Osmo Genius Starter Kit, Tigger was confident and comfortable setting up the Osmo Coding set on his iPad. The only difficulty was removing his iPad protective case in order for the iPad to fit within the Osmo base and attach the reflector over the camera. Downloading and setting up the games and the coding blocks he enjoyed learning about the basics of programming, increasing his logical skills and creative problem-solving.
