All the fun of coding and circuits. None of the headache. Let’s Start Coding has combined easy-to-use electronics, online lessons and videos, and example code to bring your kids the best way to start learning real code. Parents, you don’t have to be an expert to get them started; kids start with our pre-written code and ‘tinker’, experimenting with the code and trying out our challenges.
The Let’s Start Coding resources have been designed by educators and coders to teach the core concepts in a way that engages kids, challenges their minds, and introduces them to core coding concepts while they have fun! Our team has spent hundreds of hours leading workshops, camps, and classes through the beginning of their coding journey, so the method is proven and based on feedback from real beginners.
Finally, an introduction to real, typed coding that doesn’t require textbooks, in-person tutors, or searching for high-quality information online. If you really want your kids to get ahead with your coding skills, the Let’s Start Coding kits are the all-in-one product you’re looking for.
The Ultimate Kit 2 includes:
Maker Board 2.0 microcontroller (programmable computer chip)Maker Screen 3.0 LCD screenFlexible LED strip with 15 pixels that can be programmed to 300 colorsSound sensorLight sensorTemperature sensorSpeaker4 Buttons2 RGB (red-green-blue) LED lights1 Red, 1 Blue, and 1 Green LED lightUSB CableComponent and code reference cardsUSB cableCarrying case
By following over 100 step-by-step projects with over 2,000 lines of example code and over 8 hours of video content, kids will learn about:
Analog vs. digital logicHow fast computers can process logic and sensor readingsHow computers are programmed to “make decisions”Building basic electrical circuits (ground vs. power)How computers can interact with real-world sensorsDisplaying ‘data’ in creative ways using the screen, lights, and sounds
and they will learn how to modify their programs and write their own creative code with these skills!

Curious coders who have an interest in circuitry and imagination to build their own projects and add craft materials to their code projects. Imaginative kids who don’t want to build their own circuits, but want a pre-built ‘toy’ that they can control and modify. Passionate & independent coders who are ready to dive deep into the world of circuitry and programming Younger coders who want a toy they can modify and play with. Musicians who love tech. The perfect STEAM crossover to use both creativity and critical thinking.

CODING FOR KIDS: Kids learn real coding with 100+ projects and hands-on circuits. Designed for boys and girls with no coding experience, but who want to learn by building real electronic circuits with immediate results!
ALL INCLUSIVE: Everything kids need is in the kit, including components like LED light strip, speaker, light, temperature, and sound sensors, buttons, and an LCD screen. Free coding software available for download.
AWARD WINNING: Ultimate Kit has won the Family Choice Seal of Approval, Gold Award, Modern Library Platinum Award, and Family Choice Award. Built by teachers, engineers, and designers to make kids coding fun!
GREAT GIFT: Makes a great birthday or Christmas STEM gift for a future engineer, scientist, designer, or computer programmer. Loved by boys and girls aged 8, 9, 10,11,12,13,14,15+. Builds critical thinking and coding skills, not just more screen time.
CHALLENGING FUN: Real typed coding means there are no limits to what kids can code. They will be using the same coding language as NASA and major tech companies. Free software compatible with Windows, Mac, or Chromebook computers. Requires an internet connection. Not compatible with tablets or smartphones.
