Osmo Coding Launches to Help Kids Learn to Code in a Fun Way
Last year we saw the launches of games like Masterpiece for Osmo and Numbers for Osmo that teach children about drawing and math in unique ways. Created by former Google software engineers, the games use both physical tools and iPad apps to help kids learn with fun and exciting activities. Today, May 25, a new game in the educational series, Osmo Coding, has been released to assist children ages 5 to 12 in learning how to code.
How Osmo Coding works:
Each physical code block has a command that can be sequenced with other commands. By combining parameter, loop, and boolean blocks, kids make sequences for the character Awbie to follow. Then, by arranging physical pieces of code, children will take the character on a fun-filled journey.
This game can be used with the existing Osmo system. The iPad app is available for free on the App Store and the physical portion can be purchased on the Play Osmo website starting at $49.

From Pramod Sharma, CEO and cofounder of Osmo:
Since physical blocks have a natural and timeless feel, when they snap together it’s magical. Every parent knows the intuition with which kids naturally build, and I’m thrilled to connect that instinctual activity to the most fundamental component of modern technology: coding.
In addition to this new game, Masterpiece for Osmo, and Numbers for Osmo, the company also released Tangram for Osmo, Words for Osmo, and Newton for Osmo to help kids with geometric puzzles, learning words, and problem-solving. The Osmo games stand out for their creativity and methods of education using both digital and physical pieces for a complete package.
