Educators Who Love Kano

Over 800 schools, camps, libraries, and community programs use Kano to engage young people with technology.

We love the intersection of hardware and software and so do our campers. Kano gives lots of different projects that the kids can work on independently or with coaching. We’ve found it to be a real winner with the kids and their parents.

Jill Hodges, Founder and CEO of Firetech Camps

Our students are thrilled to be working with their Kanos. It has not only accelerated our students' interest in STEM careers, but its integration into their core content areas is motivating all of our students to dig in and take their learning to the next level.

Cherisse Cambpell, Principal: Amana Academy, an Expeditionary Learning Network School

Kano is designed for educators to adopt student-led learning in the classroom. Kids can go off script with Kano and educators can watch the magic happen.

Sam Patterson, author of “Programming in the Primary Grades”

The support we receive from Kano is unlike any other edu-provider. In addition to the resources and lesson ideas, we regularly Skype into their London HQ and meet the team - the kids find it very exciting!

Michael Luetjen, STEM Teacher

Kano absolutely empowers us to teach the new curriculum. The kit serves as an outstanding platform for engaging children about computers and what can be done with them.

Jonathan Molver, Head Teacher, King Solomon Academy

At our 10th anniversary Geek Squad Academy event, we helped 300 students build their own computer. This put the power of programming into their hands, and they had a fantastic time exploring on their own, building in Minecraft and designing.
