Get your kids creating and coding at home with monthly build boxes and online coding courses
It combines the best of online coding courses and hands-on STEAM kit for at-home kids
School closed? Stuck at home? There’s no need to put your child’s education on hold! Unleash your 7-12-year-old’s creativity and equip them with the skills of the future with engaging build projects and self-paced online coding courses – delivered right to your door every month!
There’re many coding classes for kids. There’re some STEM boxes, too. But very few combine real-world robotics and programming concepts with tangible, interactive technology for limitless, open-ended creativity.
We provide all the hardware and software they need to go from zero to coding hero – at their own pace.
Build robots, game controllers, smart home devices….the options are endless! We’re constantly adding to our project line-up so your child will never run out of projects as they level up. Not only will they develop life-long skills – they’ll be excited by the possibilities of technology as they see their hard work pay off.
Each NextMaker Box contains a new project. It provides everything you need to learn in an engaging way – including hardware, software and the curriculum.
Every NextMaker Box includes motors, sensors, mechanical parts, and raw materials to create, learn, play, and spark the fires of passion for technology. Included is 3-hour standard-aligned online coding courses and interactive, step-by-step coding activities to help keep kids on track.
The NextMaker Box Provides A CSTA Standard-aligned Coding Curriculum:
After one year of NextMaker Box projects, they may have a deeper understanding of technology and coding than 90% of the world’s adult population!
Tons of fun and educational projects! Such as:
Intuitive software and enriching online activities to guide self-driven learning
NextMaker Box comes with standard-aligned online coding courses each month. Your child will follow visual, step-by-step classes to solve coding challenges, build their projects, and learn complex concepts at their own pace. Online activities are divided into these modules:
Step-by-step instructions on how to assemble each NextMaker Box project.
Learn to Code
Clear, structured, CSTA standards-aligned courses with animated content to teach key coding concepts.
Fun but educational cartoons provide visual elaborations and help children grasp complex STEAM concepts.
Kids will dive into coding activities in the block-based coding platform, mBlock.
A built-in feedback system checks their code for errors and provides tips, making sure the learning experience is entirely self-driven.
Unleash your creativity with limitless building possibilities
True learning comes from play and experimentation. After a few months, your child will have an assortment of sensors, motors, materials and components. The magic of NextMaker Boxes? They can be hacked and combined to create nearly anything imaginable.
The only limitation is your child’s imagination!
By Makeblock, award-winning STEAM innovator
We have self-developed the core electronics components and online learning environment for NextMaker Box. Our proprietary products – Halocode computers, mBuild modules and mBlock coding platform connect seamlessly for an intuitive, joyful learning experience.
Halocode – the adaptable, Wi-Fi-enabled single board computer
Halocode is a single board computer with built-in Wi-Fi. Designed for programming education, its compact design integrates a broad selection of electronic modules. Pairing with block-based programming software mBlock, Halocode offers all sorts of opportunities to experience AI & IoT application with just a few clicks; it makes creation easy and fun.
You will receive the Halocode in Box 2, and unlock its power to create your own project!
Coding made easy with mBlock coding platform
mBlock, the one-stop, drag-and-drop platform for children to learn to code, will be embedded in the e-learning portal provided by the NextMaker Box. Children can learn to code with block-based programming in the NextMaker Box, and then they can move on to Python in mBlock. Through mBlock, they can also learn advanced topics like robotics programming, Artificial Intelligence, and data science.
