Google Project Bloks for Kids

Google introduces Project Bloks a research project for Kids. Kids can create Sensor Lab, Music Maker and Coding Kit with Project Bloks. Google said, Project Bloks is still in active research.

Our aim is to create an open hardware platform to help developers, designers, and researchers build the next generation of tangible programming experiences for kids. Kids naturally play and learn by using their hands, building stuff and doing things together. One of the benefits of tangible programming is that it makes code physical, so kids can play with it.

Ultimately, our goal is to enable kids to develop computational thinking (a set of foundational problem-solving skills) from a young age through coding experiences that are playful, tactile, and collaborative. Creating an open platform for designers, developers and researchers will remove the technical barriers that get in their way: so they can focus on innovating, experimenting, and creating new ways to help kids develop computational thinking.
