How often do you see a parent sitting down with their kids, walking them
through a line of code or pointing out the components of a motherboard?
Probably never. Because kids think it’s boring. And parents think it’s
hard. Today, children grow up surrounded by shiny objects that look and
act like magic. There are screens that respond to touch and computers
that can do just about anything a five-year-old can dream up. But even
though kids have been immersed in technology since birth, it’s rare for
them to actually know how it works.
A new kit called Kano is hoping to change that. Released last week on Kickstarter, the
Raspberry Pi kit merges basic computer science concepts with gorgeous,
functional design, turning just about anyone into a computer maker.
