Say “No” To Video Games And “Yes” To Coding
Wonder what you’re going to do with your kid all summer? Need something fun, yet educational? Something to peak their interest? What your child needs to be doing this summer is Bitsbox!
What, you ask, is Bitsbox? It’s COMPUTER CODING!
Your child is practically a technology expert before they’re even in middle school. They know their way around just about any electronic device, but you get tired of all the wasted “screen time.”
You want your kid to do something productive and educational, that isn’t just playing on an app. So let them MAKE an app!
It’s time to Bitsbox!
Bitsbox makes learning how to code easy and affordable!
If you’re an avid Shark Tank fan then you’ve heard of Bitsbox. It’s a subscription service that offers unique computer coding learning experiences for children ages 6-14.
But don’t panic at the idea of a subscription. It’s easy to start and stop and there’s no contract or commitment.
And don’t worry, you the parent, don’t have to know anything at all about coding in order for your son or daughter to be able to learn using Bitsbox.
Here’s What You Get
We sprung for the “Apper Keeper” binder on our first order, so Cooper could keep the “coding cards” organized. It was only an extra $5, so I thought it was worth it.
Everything is very colorful, on high quality cardstock, with engaging graphics and pictures.
“How To BitsBox”
You have to find a computer with a physical keyboard because as of right now the coding part of Bitsbox isn’t meant to be done on a tablet.
Then you merely open a web browser, and go to Bitsbox.com/code.
Cooper sat down with his binder and cards and just started. It’s as simple as that.
He didn’t need any help from a parent.
Then what’s even more cool is that your kid can “run their app” on a real phone with the installation of a QR reader on your device.
Bitsbox vs. Computer Camp
My son has gone to a couple of computer coding and video game making camps in past years. Computer-type camps can be pricey.
BitsBox brings the coding education right to your home for as little as $20 per month.
The cost is no different than if you were going to buy your kid a couple of books or a video game. But this is better!
Keep your kid immersed in technology education over the summer.
Try a Bitsbox and see if it’s a fit for your child.
