Taj Bird is a quiet unassuming Yr 10 student who dedicated his summer holidays to work experience at Kitsunei’s Milton office. Taj immersed himself in the Kitsi Platform. His first reaction: “a bit unusual at first. It was pretty usable”.
“My first impression of the Blocks was that they looked simple, but in a cool way, almost like magnetic Lego. Then, when I started using the Kitsunei Block Software, I found the block programming a bit different to the coding I’d used in the past. I picked it up quickly and grew to like it.” “They looked simple, but in a cool way, almost like magnetic Lego”
A Rewarding Experience
One of the most rewarding experiences was making a car move all by own logic. It was such an ‘aha’ moment. Seeing the car move was awesome! It was just so simple to do. I thought it would be so much harder.
The other thing was making a face on the LED Matrix, that was cool. I got that to work using the Script block. That’s what I liked about the system, I could test out things using the gates, but if I wanted a challenge, I could use code to achieve the same outcome. That was the best, going through the program and achieving an end goal my way.

Hey, I made plenty of mistakes, but that makes it a little more interesting. I learnt
plenty and had fun along the way!
Oh and Taj did say emphatically that the “Breadboard was Awesome!”
