STEM Reimagined: Craft meets Code
The Love to Code Creative Coding Kit is a fun, new way to learn circuits and coding. Open our interactive storybook, Love to Code Vol 1, and you’re greeted by Fern the Frog and her friends. Watch this video to hear Fern’s story
Join Fern and her pals on a journey to make cool interactive projects and learn circuits and programming along the way. You’ll learn to make LED lights shine and blink with loops and variables, craft paper switches and program them with conditional statements, and make complex light patterns with multithreaded programming. Finally, level up your coding skills with our debugging chapter, which shows you how to find and fix problems in projects.
With Love to Code, everyone can create stories with circuits and code!
ChibiScript and Arduino Code Editor
If you would like to start with text-based coding, try using ChibiScript, an Arduino-based beginner-friendly coding language. You can code directly in Arduino programming language with this text editor!
This tutorial shows how to assemble a Chibi Chip into the clip. Note: your Chibi Chip comes pre-assembled in the Creative Coding kit
You can power your circuit with the Love to Code binder, or any other USB power supply.
