Kiddix – The Operating System for Kids

Shot1
Interesting, a Linux variant just for kids

The Kiddix Platform is a complete operating system and software environment for children, built from the ground up with your family’s needs and safety in mind.

Designed for elementary school children, Kiddix includes a word processor, calendar, email, web browser, games, educational material, a suite of innovative parental control tools, and more!

Kiddix can be installed on most PC’s and is easy to setup and completely hassle-free.

They have a “pay what you want” promotion this week for the folks who have kids and want to try it out – it would be interesting if future versions included Scratch and the Arduino IDE so kids can program and also do some electronics. Having this all on a bootable “live cd” would be good too 🙂


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
