With Bitsbox, children learn to program by creating fun apps that work on computers and gadgets like iPads and Android tablets. The Bitsbox.com website provides each child with a virtual tablet and a place to type their code. The experience starts with lots of guidance, first showing learners exactly what to type, then quickly encouraging them to modify and expand their apps by typing in new commands. We developed Bitsbox for kids as young as six. With younger kids (first through third grades), it's helpful to have an adult close by, but older kids can build apps entirely on their own. No previous programming experience is needed. Bitsbox is a based in Boulder, Colorado. The team consists of Scott Lininger and Aidan Chopra, two dads who worked together for years on SketchUp at Google and then at Trimble.
