about us

Teach your kids to love codingBitsbox was founded in 2014 by two former Googlers who wanted to teach kids to code. Their idea was to combine beautifully designed example projects with a simple website where kids could build apps and share them with their friends and family. Sending the projects by mail on a regular schedule keeps kids excited and makes coding easier to learn.

Today, the Bitsbox team is made up of a whole team of men and women in Boulder, Colorado, with backgrounds in coding, fine art, biology, theater, graphic design, engineering, architecture, business, and literature. Who says coding is only for computer scientists?

Aidan

Chopra

Co-founder & CCO

Aidan Chopra entered the world in December of 1975, Canadian, half-Indian, and fully clothed. He grew up in Montreal, studied science, then fine art, then architecture, only to end up working on software at Google in Boulder. He's spent the last five years developing a system for teaching kids to code as part of Bitsbox, the startup he co-founded. He has two kids, one spouse, one canoe, and is the luckiest guy in the world.
