Project Bloks

Google and other top tech companies are interested in getting more young kids interested in coding. Take Project Bloks for instance. It is a LEGO-like platform for researchers and developers to come up with tangible programming experiences for kids. It is no secret that young children love to use their hands to do things. This platform makes coding physical.

This is a modular system made up of electronic boards and programming pucks, which send commands to devices when connected. Base boards are available for reading instructions from pucks. There is also a Brain board that sends instructions via WiFi or Bluetooth to connected devices. The brain is based on a Raspberry Pi Zero. Google has shared more info about this platform here.
