Learn to code by playing a video game with this innovative kit.

Code Gamer by Thames & Kosmos is a game controller and app (for iOS and Android) combo designed to teach young programmers aged 10 and up the Arduino programming language.

As you play through the game's 15 levels, you'll solve increasingly complicated Arduino puzzles and customize your controller, learning how code can make the controller light up or play sounds as well as how sensors in the controller can interact with the game.

The kit, which must be used in conjunction with a tablet or smartphone, teaches practical skills for both coding and building high-tech gadgets using a real programming language. This kit is a great way to encourage an older child who's already interested in programming and technology.

The 47-piece set includes: an Arduino-compatible microcontroller with Bluetooth, a cable, rotary control wheel, circuit board, gamepad housing, two push buttons, motion sensor, temperature sensor, sound sensor, light sensor, miscellaneous project parts, and an instruction manual. In true Thames & Kosmos style, the 64-page manual includes detailed, step-by-step instructions with photographs and tons of information on coding vocabulary, concepts, projects, applications, and more.Once you have mastered Code Gamer, you'll know enough Arduino to build and program your own gadgets. This well-designed parent's choice winner bridges the digital and physical play worlds. The sky is the limit!Meet the the four sensorbots with special powers that plug into the gamepad.
  • The sensorbot named Kelvin melts ice blocks when you warm its temperature sensor with your hand.
  • The Decibels sensorbot will assist you if you trigger its sound sensor with noise.
  • Lumen reveals things hidden in dark spaces when you shine light on its light sensor.
  • Newton will force its way through obstacles in your path if you shake the touch sensor.
  • Level Editor: Design and create your own game levels, share them, and access other players levels.


Level by level, learn the basics of the Arduino programming language!
  • Solve increasingly complex Arduino puzzles.
  • Discover which program commands make the LEDs on your gamepad blink and the sound module activate.
  • Learn how your gamepad works and how you can configure it yourself.


Apply your new programming knowledge in cool projects!
  • Use the sensors in new applications to bring your own ideas to life.
  • Use the light sensor to count how many times a drawer is opened or program an alarm system that sends you messages.
  • Enter the digital makers world and unleash your creativity.
