About Smart Kiddo
All our courses are carefully designed according to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) standards. For students without programming experience to grasp the concepts easily, we developed our own educational apps , which integrate Google's state-of-the-art visual programming language library "Blockly" with iPad and PC for users to control smart robots. In our lessons, students can use the app on iPad to build programs with colorful drag-and-drop command blocks, and then control smart robots to complete fun missions while acquiring STEM knowledge in the fields of robotics, cause and effect!

At Smart Kiddo we believe imagination and creativity are limitless and we want the community to share their creations! For this reason, we give students the option to make their games & mazes "public". Links to the games can be submitted to our Koder Kommunity forum, which is moderated for safety, security and sensitivity.
