Ok, new wiki time! This is a collection of the best coding, project and STEM resources for kids. I was going to start a thread just about my favs (Made with Code, Kano, and Construct 2), but there are so many out there. So, wondering your experiences with any and what your kids like the best. Software, hardware, website, apps? Whatcha got? (Edit to add to the list!!)

Construct 2
Construct 2 is a powerful ground breaking HTML5 game creator designed specifically for 2D games. It allows anyone to build games — no coding required!

Curiosity Machine
At Curiosity Machine, we practice by building hands-on engineering design challenges. Together, we inspire children to succeed by being curious, creative, and persistent.

Make a computer, learn what’s inside, play with code. Spark a lifelong passion for computing and the arts.

Made with Code
Girls start out with a love of science and technology, but lose it somewhere along the way. Let’s help encourage that passion.

Science Buddies
The award-winning, non-profit Science Buddies empowers K-12 students, parents, and teachers to quickly and easily find free project ideas and help in all areas of science from physics to food science and music to microbiology.

ScratchJr (App)
With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) can program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer.

Tech Rocket
Tech Rocket is an online learning platform, built by iD Tech, for kids and teens to learn valuable STEM skills, year-round and on-demand.

Tynker’s online courses provide a complete learning system with interactive exercises, guided tutorials, fun creativity tools, puzzles and more to make programming fun.
