beanz magazine is published bi-monthly, 6 times a year, in February, April, June, August, October, and December. Issues include hands on projects, puzzles, and other materials our readers use to learn about programming, computer science, and technology.

The magazine launched online in August 2013. A print version has been available since February 2015. The magazine is published by Owl Hill Media, LLC.

The magazine has won several awards from The Parents’ Choice Foundation and Tillywig.

Our magazine provides school and community library patrons with useful articles and resource links about computer science and programming, information libraries also can use for their technology programs in their communities. While the magazine is written to help kids ages 8 to 12 and older learn about programming and computer science, the articles also help parents, teachers, and adults who want to learn alongside kids in their lives. Our magazine strives to provide easy to understand articles and how-to information, with a bit of fun.

We offer print + online access library subscriptions for school and community libraries. The print version includes useful reference information and articles. Every article includes the URL to the online version of the article which includes additional links for readers to explore.

Library subscriptions also can include a custom URL that, when clicked, automatically logs people into the online version of our magazine without having to share your login details. This link is to be used to support the library mission, for example, on a library resource page, a browser bookmark, or in a classroom with students and teachers.

Community and school libraries can request a printed sample.
