“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.
