Show them what's important

Kids' attention swiftly wanders off, but with Codebender, you'll be set and ready to go in a matter of seconds.

No installation

codebender:blocks allows you to write, test and compile your Arduino code, and program your Arduino board from your browser. That’s why there’s no more need to access each computer in your classroom and do manual setups. We know how time consuming setups can be, especially with slow download speeds, random bugs and outdated drivers.

With Codebender, everything is immediately available and up-to-date once the students open up the browser.

Codebender - Scratch-like language

Scratch-like language

codebender:blocks uses Blockly, a Scratch-like language by Google, designed not to make kids scratch their heads over programming. It is made to work with Arduino. They can now program without having to learn C++.

Classroom ready

Getting all students on the same page is often very hard, especially when teaching them new concepts that require a lot of concentration. With Codebender, you can literally get them on the same page and explain everything you need, step by step.

We give you a unique URL that you can share with your class or workshop. From there you can manage the whole class and your students can easily see what they need to do.

Codebender - Works with chromebooks

Works with chromebooks

Although Chromebooks can’t install regular applications that other operating systems can, Codebender easily bypasses that by working within the browser.

That said, Codebender is fully available and operates flawlessly on Chrome OS, as well as other operating systems.

Compliant with all regulations

When it comes to younger students, safety and privacy should be a number one concern. That’s why we took time and made Codebender totally compliant with all regulations that allow it to be used in schools with younger students (i.e. COPPA, FERPA).
