NEWS – Kano who produces a variety of STEM kits for kids (and adults) to learn to build their own computers and learn to code have partnered with Warner Brothers to offer the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit. This kit allows kids to build their own wand and then use it to control onscreen objects and characters through 70 programming tasks inspired by the Wizarding World.

If you’re not already familiar with STEM, it stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and it’s a way to teach these important disciplines to kids and adults.

The wand in the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit uses a series of gestures that your iOS, Android, Mac and Windows PC will translate into commands to control objects in the Kano app while teaching basic programming fundamentals like IF/THEN logic, loops, variables, and more.

The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit is priced at $99.99 and ships on October 1st, 2018. Head over to Kano.me or Amazon to pre-order.
