Magic is Just a Sequence Away with the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit

With a swish and a flick, kids can now code their own spells straight from the Wizarding World.

Kano launches the first-ever Harry Potter STEM product, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, with the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit.

The build-it-yourself wireless wand teaches kids how to code with more than 70 challenges inspired by the Wizarding World. The wand works with software and a connected app to capture movements and turn them into effects, such as making serpents slither, toads transfigure, fires flow, feathers float, goblets duplicate, Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans enlarge, and more.

Kids will build the wand using a step-by-step coding manual and pieces such as a gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer. Once assembled, kids can download the Kano app to unlock challenges across six Wizarding World settings, including Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade, and The Forbidden Forest. The challenges teach the fundamentals of coding and introduce the basic concepts of real-world programming using a block-based interface and a JavaScript inspector.

The kit is available for preorder today, and will be available globally on Oct. 1. Watch the magic for yourself below!
