STEM is about to become lot more magical, with the help of Harry Potter and his friends.  The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit allows students to use an app to program a Harry Potter wand with different spells, activated by motion sensors.

The app uses digital blocks to help the user create different commands.  There are also 70 coding challenges that teach the user different coding skills.  Then, users can create any special effect they can dream up, and design a spell that will do just about anything.

Young Harry Potter fans everywhere can learn important skills like design thinking and problem solving while casting spells including Incendio, Stupefy, and Wingardium Leviosa.  Users can even share their spells and projects using the Kano World website.

The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit will become available for purchase on October 1.  Kano is charging $99 for this fun, interactive STEM experience. You can preorder it now from Kano’s website.
