Microsoft to Host “Harry Potter” Summer Coding Workshops with Kano Coding Kit

Young witches and wizards in the United States will avoid having a Dursley-ish summer thanks to Microsoft and the innovative Harry Potter Kano coding kits.

According to Romper, Microsoft will host a number of Harry Potter coding workshops in stores across the US, combining the technology of the Microsoft Surface tablet and the Harry Potter coding kit from Kano. Witches and wizards age eight and above will be introduced to the world of coding using the Kano kit, building up a foundation of knowledge using the magic of the Harry Potter series. They will then delve further into techniques of coding, learning to cast spells and even compete in a Quidditch match.

The Harry Potter Kano kit is the first Harry Potter STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) product. The kit aims to introduce young fans to the fundamentals of coding using the wizarding world franchise and hopefully spark a lifelong interest in coding and programming.

The Microsoft Harry Potter Kano coding workshops are free to attend and there are workshops happening throughout the summer. Fans can find their nearest participating store, plus information about dates, times, and how to register on the Microsoft website.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
