Awesome Shield, A New Computing Platform to Let Kids Learn Coding

Awesome Shield waiting for crowdfunding at Kickstarter is a breakthrough platform to allow kids to master the science and art of coding. While bringing up kids with nourishment for their innovative spirit is a concern for most urban parents, this new innovative platform can come to their aid. It comes loaded with custom hardware, a simplified code, and a bevy of internet based video tutorials. All these put together can really give your child better scope to learn to code. This breakthrough platform is coming with a small computer named Arduino through which kids can take lessons from video tutorials online.

A combination of both hardware and code

Awesome Shield is a breakthrough product simply because it comes packed with web-based video tutorials and very simplified codebase within a highly capable small hardware device called Arduino. It offers the following things.

  • The gamut of online video tutorials allows developing the coding knowledge in easy steps. The simple and focused lessons relate to various regular disciplines  like science, mathematics, technology and engineering.
  • Thanks to simplified code the kids can quickly learn the fundamentals and see results in no time.
  • The small and portable hardware called Arduino that comes with Awesome Shield further helps to bring the code to life.

How it develops coding knowledge in kids?

Awesome Shield though is built for intelligence level specific to kids it can allow them creating apps to tweak with the objective world around. Through simple coding, they can create effects with sensors, light, buzzers etc. By exercising such control and maneuvers with their learned code they actually gain knowledge about how the real world tech products and interfaces are programmed. Thanks to an array of web-based tutorials with an immersive hands-on learning experience, they can easily get a solid grasp over the transformation of an abstract code into robust reality.

Awesome Shied allows them building various lively interactive real life products ranging from alarm clock with sensors to a programmable source of light. From the so called technologies involved behind the products and interfaces, this new platform also allows them to get a first-hand course on infusing effective design with the tech interface. By learning to build small tech products they actually get the first ever valuable experience of coding.

The following aspects explain how it helps to build the coding skill of kids.

  • It comes integrated with learning concepts referring to disciplines like Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) in its tutorials.
  • A simplified coding platform keeps them engaged while boosting their creative spirit.
  • This new system allows segmenting a complicated problem into workable and separate parts to apply their coding and analytical skill in a step by step manner.
  • It boosts their critical thinking ability with easy approach while facing complex projects.

Arduino

Awesome Shield offers easy and simplified programming with a simple and powerful hardware tailor-made for kids. This portable hardware called Arduino allows one to master the skill of coding in just no time for controlling an array of perceptible things like sounds, lights, and some device sensors. Arduino is actually a highly sophisticated small computer useful for developing small gadgets, digital toys, games, and other digital objects.

What it comes with?

By purchasing Awesome Shield the buyers get the following things.

  • Portable computer Arduino Uno with a USB cable
  • The main Awesome Shield hardware
  • Tutorial videos
  • An easy to learn code library

Last but not the least of benefits of Awesome Shield is that it comes packed with hardware and the code library that are open source and consequently allows open access for anyone.
