Code Me

How can we introduce the next generation of children to coding? Many electronic toolkits have been developed with the aim of lowering the threshold for making and learning about electronics concepts. Through our research we have developed MakeMe and SenseMe cubes that enable learning about electronics, programming, making and the Internet of Things engaging, playful, challenging, collaborative and discovery-based.

The CodeMe project is changing how children learn to code - by transforming it into a series of engaging, challenging and creative activities that combine physical, internet and media programming. The aim is to lower the threshold of making and coding, such that children as young as 6 can begin. Our approach is to develop playful and engaging ways in teaching and learning about coding through physical activities that bring out the creativity in young people, and introduce them to the world of innovative technology, especially the Internet of Things.
