Code Your Galaxy with Kano's Star Wars The Force™ Coding Kit

Today, we’re excited to announce, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, the Star Wars The Force™ Coding Kit. A build-it-yourself Bluetooth® motion sensor, and creative coding experience that takes you on a journey from learner to master, as you code, create, play, and share Star Wars adventures.

Make it Yourself

Pop open the box, and follow the step-by-step storybook, learning about the board, button, and bits that make up the build-it-yourself motion sensor, before connecting it to your compatible device, and bringing it to life with a wave of your hand.

Code Your Galaxy

Embark upon epic Star Wars adventures. Take on step-by-step coding challenges. Go from learner to master. Connect code blocks, see the JavaScript behind them, learn about loops, logic, and variables. Then swing lightsabers, levitate X-wings, and pilot starships with a wave of your hand.

What’s Your Star Wars story?

Choose the Rebel or Galactic Empire icon for your motion sensor. Code red or blue lightsabers, levitate Stormtroopers or Rebels. Discover costumes and Droids for your avatar.

Share Your Star Wars Adventures

Make, share, and play your creations with the Star Wars Kano World community. See thousands of community creations in our safe, secure, online space. Explore the code behind any creation, then remix to; swap a character, add a starship, change your Force gesture, fill the screen with Porgs, and more.
