There are few things that can spark a child's imagination quite like Harry Potter. Now, London-based technology start-up Kano has partnered with Warner Brothers to harness the magical potential of the fictional world to teach young people how to code.
Kano has been an undeniable success story. The company, which began life as a Kickstarter project, had shipped north of 200,000 of its Raspberry Pi coding kits by the end of last year. 2017 also saw the company raise a $28 million round and get backing from Sesame Street's Sesame Ventures.
Harry Potter is turning his attentions from battling dark wizardry to teaching kids how to code, after DIY computing kit maker Kano today unveiled a partnership with Warner Bros to launch a new coding kit.

People got angry when a Barbie doll was introduced that spoke the phrase "math class is tough." Yet 26 years later, there is still plenty of evidence that girls avoid the STEM subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Komal Singh at Google noticed the trend herself, and decided to do something about it.
"Engineers are boys." What do you do when your 4 year-old-daughter-proclaims this? Start a passion project, collaborate with your peers, and publish a children's picture book to bust that bias. I wrote "Ara the Star Engineer" to inspire young kids to explore the magic of STEM. And it took a village to do it.
