Making Coding tangible for Kids - Project Bloks / by Julian Kramer

Learning how to code can be quite intimidating, but the moment you make something abstract and playful - and tangible it can teach you all the relevant logics and understanding you need... 

So what is Project Bloks? It's a research collaboration between Google, Paulo Blikstein (Stanford University) and IDEO with the goal of creating an open hardware platform that researchers, developers and designers can use to build physical coding experiences. As a first step, Google has created a system for tangible programming and built a working prototype with it.
