Code Lab
This introductory coding kit from Let's Start Coding comes with over 100 experiments for children ages 8-15 to try completing independently.

The kit is easy to set up with a computer, and no additional software installations are necessary, as all the coding can be done in a web browser. Pre-written code allows users to study syntax, flow, and basic constructs of C++, moving from the basics into more complex debugging challenges. The kit includes activities that create patterns of light and sound, bringing in a fun, creative aspect to play while reinforcing programming basics. Coding is an essential skill common across many engineering fields, developing problem-solving skills and perseverance. - K. R. Schieltz, Purdue Reviewer
