Coding Jam

Description

Kids love music, right? Now they can compose their own by arranging Osmo’s Coding Blocks into patterns and sequences. So it’s happy, hands-on play, and an awesome way to introduce Coding. 

Create: Kids 5–12 use coding blocks to create explosive beats.

Learn: Kids get to know coding’s creative side while developing an ear for rhythm, melody and harmony.

Share: Once they’ve composed a jam, kids can safely share it with friends, family and the jam community.

Start with a beat and end with a hit! In this open ended game, your little jammer mixes sounds and shares compositions — all while learning the basics of coding.

Wonderful worlds filled with musical characters: From prehistoric cave beats, to interplanetary pings, to science-lab techno grooves — kids playfully code sounds from these different character worlds to create their own unique beats.
