Review Highlights:

My eleven year old son is totally captivated by the zany and informative articles. It's written in a friendly way so you don't have to be computer/coding expert to enjoy the magazine. I like it because it will help us stay abreast of the latest technologies, languages, platforms, and other industry changes. As a added bonus, it's great reading practice, as he doesn't really enjoy traditional storybooks.

The magazine teaches students about coding and it's various applications. It motivated my students to learn more about coding and computer sciecne. Beanz helped them understand how coding applies to their interests. The photos and illustrations are colorful and lively. There was a variety of topics covered in an interesting way.

The magazine teaches about computer science, things such as coding and robots were discussed. I liked that it teaches how math and other skills are used in the computer science field. It's educational, but interesting, which is great for kids.

beanz Magazine teaches computer programming in a fun, engaging way. Each article is on a different subject however they all tie in well to computer programming. This makes it fun and interesting to read.
