The world is more interconnected than ever before, and the importance of a common language to bridge gaps in communication is undeniable. In the field of technology, this common language is programming. Australian organisation, EduKits, has taken on the challenge of making coding education accessible and engaging for students worldwide. The team at EduKits has just introduced multi-language support for their popular visual coding tool, Code Kit, in an effort to break down language barriers and inspire the next generation of inventors, creators, thinkers, and tinkerers.
EduKits’ story began with the dream of a Year 8 high school student, Michael Nixon, who wanted to share his passion for technology with kids and teens around the world. Today, the company’s products have reached customers in over 15 countries, and they continue to inspire young minds through workshops, resources, and innovative coding kits.
Code Kit is an ultimate visual editor for Arduino, allowing users to create programs visually with a drag-and-drop, block-based coding editor that instantly generates Arduino code. With the added functionality of Code Kit Desktop, users can compile and upload their projects directly to their boards without the need for an IDE.
Designed with the classroom in mind, Code Kit offers offline functionality, direct code upload, and robust documentation, making it a perfect educational tool. Additionally, it includes all fundamental Arduino variable types and focuses exclusively on hardware to provide rich educational opportunities and positive first experiences with code.
Now, Code Kit is taking a giant leap forward by introducing support for 15 languages. In addition to English, Code Kit now supports the following languages:
- Aussie English
- 中文 (Simplified Chinese)
- 中文繁體 (Traditional Chinese)
- 한국어 (Korean)
- 日本語 (Japanese)
- Русский (Russian)
- Türkçe (Turkish)
- العربية (Arabic)
- हिन्दी (Hindi)
With this new feature, students from diverse linguistic backgrounds can access Code Kit and learn the universal language of programming in their native tongue. This groundbreaking update not only broadens the reach of Code Kit, but also promotes inclusivity and fosters a global community of young innovators.
As a testament to their commitment to continually evolving their products, EduKits offers regular updates to Code Kit, adding new features and improvements in line with their mission to make coding accessible for all. Users can also take advantage of one-click copy or download options, and a wide range of Arduino and Arduino-compatible boards are supported.
The introduction of multi-language support in Code Kit is a game-changer in the world of coding education. By breaking down language barriers, EduKits is empowering students around the globe to unlock their full potential as the next generation of technology pioneers.
