beanz is a Kids Computer Coding Magazine

Learning to code can help set your kids up for personal and professional success. Coding teaches problem solving skills, for example, and how to think analytically. And there’s all kinds of coding, from Scratch to Python to coding plugins to make Minecraft more fun. We’ve written about coding topics programmers encounter like rubber duck debugging, dogfooding, and pair programming. Our print magazine also helps kids with reading and math skills. Our award-winning print issues, emails, and 1100+ online archived articles teach Scratch, Python, JavaScript, and other coding projects for kids.

“I really enjoy reading beanz, especially coding and computer science concepts, and I always look forward to getting them. Apparently, so do my lambs!”

I appreciate that it's aimed at students/children without talking down to them. The adult reading material for computer science sometimes is too much to process. beanz offers smaller doses that are more accessible.

I like the variety of topics, but also the consistency of having topics addressed repeatedly. I like that it's both hardware and software, so I can entice kids who have those interests. I like that there's a range of articles from pretty easy to harder (some are too hard for my students, but that's actually them hints that there are things to aspire to.) I look at it a few times each issue, and search back issues topics to find articles to recommend to students.
