Teach your kids to love coding

Bitsbox was founded in 2014 by two former Googlers who wanted to teach kids to code. Their idea was to combine beautifully designed example projects with a simple website where kids could build apps and share them with their friends and family. Sending the projects by mail on a regular schedule keeps kids excited and makes coding easier to learn.

Today, the Bitsbox team is made up of 12 men and women in Boulder, Colorado, with backgrounds in coding, fine art, biology, theater, graphic design, engineering, architecture, business, and literature. Who says coding is only for computer scientists?

Two Coders!


Which box will I receive?

All Bitsbox subscriptions start with Box 1 (Animal House). If you've already received Box 1, contact the seller through Amazon immediately after you subscribe.

What kind of computer do I need to do Bitsbox?

Bitsbox teaches typed coding, so a keyboard is critical. The best computer is a laptop or desktop running Chrome, Safari, or any modern web browser.

What programming language does Bitsbox teach?

Bitsbox uses JavaScript with a handful of custom commands that make it easier for beginners to build stuff with cool graphics and sounds.
