Win a Kano Pixel kit for your Dojo!

We’re working with the awesome folks at Kano to bring Pixel kits to the CoderDojo community! Kano aims to inspire the next generation of makers and dreamers with hands-on technology kits that  demystify technology for kids of all ages. 
To do this we are running a competition for Dojos to enter to win one of ten Pixel kits for use at their sessions! This opportunity is open to ALL verified CoderDojos globally that are registered on Zen!

2b-pixel-components-0About Kano’s Pixel Kit:

The Pixel Kit is an interactive light board with dazzling LEDs. Anyone can make games, visualize real world data, and display stunning artwork in over 1.7 million colors–all powered by Kano Code.

Features:

  •   Each kit includes 128 LED lights, with built-in microphone, a custom case, 4-way joystick, Tilt Sensor, illustrated storybook guide, and exclusive stickers
  •      Connect your Pixel kit to the network and display real-time weather, sports, and social data. Use the microphone to visualize your voice or music, andurn audio waves into colors and shapes
  •      Make pixel art and animations with our frame by frame animation tool in Kano Code
  •      Use the Tilt Sensor to detect 3D movement to control your games and data.
  •      Share your creations, view user-generated tutorials, and connect with Kano’s global community, Kano World
These kits are being provided for Dojos as a resource to use for their sessions and should be kept by the Dojo for use on a regular basis to give as many youth attendees the opportunity to learn more about Raspberry Pi and the Internet of Things. This is a great opportunity for young people at your Dojo to learn more about the hardware side of things!
