Creating and Coding on Elementari

Elementari makes it simple for kids to create engaging stories and projects using user-friendly tools and coding capabilities. Here's an overview of the creation process:

Easy Creation Tools

Elementari's intuitive design interface allows you to add text, images, backgrounds, and shapes easily, similar to Google Slides or PowerPoint. Access thousands of illustrations and sound effects from a growing library, or add your own. Choose from a wide variety of fonts, and enhance your pages with shapes and speech bubbles. Additionally, choose from basic templates to customize, sparking creativity and saving time.

Node-Based Visual Coding

The Event Graph is a powerful tool for coding animations and interactions by connecting blocks together. Clicking the blue Event Graph button will flip the page to the back side, where you can start coding. This node-based visual coding system is similar to those used in professional game and movie development, making it an excellent introduction to coding for kids.

Visual Coding in the Real World

Node-based visual coding, used on Elementari, is also utilized in creating popular games and movies, such as:

  • Unreal Engine: Games like Fortnite, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Rocket League.
  • Unity: The engine behind Pokémon Go.
  • Houdini: Used for animated movies like Moana and Frozen.
  • Massive: For creating large battle scenes in Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings.

Coding for Kids

Start by creating simple slideshows or digital storytelling books without any coding, perfect for younger kids. For a more interactive experience, use our interactive lessons that guide students step-by-step through basic coding, including adding animations, voiceovers, different endings, and other interactions.

Kids as young as 6 can start coding on Elementari. Young coders particularly enjoy creating choose-your-own-adventures and recording their own voiceovers, enhancing their engagement and creativity. Read through this example project
