Ada

I am Ada

I can help your kids become creators.

Want to learn how to code? Switch me on and I’ll teach you how. Want to make cool things with motors, lights and sensors? I’ll show you how they work and help you bring your ideas to life. Got the ideas but need support to make it real? I’ll introduce you to a safe, online community of like-minded creators.

Who is Ada For?

7-10

Little makers can create art and stop motion animation, even their own comic books and characters. And - if they’re feeling ambitious - they can bring those comic books to life with a bit of code...

10-13

As they grow, they can develop an understanding of real programming languages like Lua or Javascript. Ada offers online tutorials on this and much more - even providing a grounding in basic electronics.

13+

The sky is the limit for your teen, there are no boundaries to what they can learn, create or share using Ada.

Learn With Ada

Ada has a built in versatile tutorial system for teaching not only programming, electronics but is also adaptable to other stuff like maths and science. Lessons can include any type of media, from videos, interactive coding sessions, quizzes, watch/repeat-style interactions, text slides and interactive diagrams. And you're not stuck with what we provide - anyone can create new content with our simple authoring tool and share it online with the rest of the world!

What Makes Me Tick?

I'm a box of megabits and software is my superpower! My software is unlike any other and is specifically designed to help beginners create, make and code.

There's no steep learning curve. Beginners can make some pretty cool stuff with me, and for the more advanced user, the sky's the limit! Just turn me on and get tinkering.

Connect me to all your things...

I'm loaded with opportunities to connect with electronic gizmos that are lying around your house. Plug me into your musical instruments, gamepads or camera to make cool things, or use me to control your robots, Lego toys and more.

...or make your own things!

Ada includes a built-in microcontroller - a fancy piece of circuitry into which you can plug in lights, motors and sensors. I’ll teach you how to make traffic lights, lie detectors, light sensors, motion detectors and turn you into an electronics wizard.

Imagine. Create. Share.

Ready to show the world what you've made? With consent from your parents, a single click will upload your projects to the web. And if you find yourself needing some extra help along the way, our online community will be there to assist.

What's in the Box?

Along with me, Ada, you get a manual for bedtime reading, an SD card to save your genius creations, a power adapter to fire me up, a mouse to control me, and some groovy electronic bits to make your first gadget - all the essentials you need to get started.

All I need is a screen

Plug me into any monitor or TV and we’re ready to go. You can also display your game scores (or cheeky messages) on my small built-in LCD display.

Just Add You.

Inventors, scientists, engineers, artists and musicians of tomorrow, work with me to unleash your creative potential. The future is digital and Ada will make your kids ready for it.

YOU imagine it, WE create it. Together, we can make so many awesome things.

The future is digital, with Ada your kids will be ready now.
