Can I use multiple accounts on the app?
Both the Coding Wand and the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit App can be used by more than one user!
For the Kano App, each user creates their own Kano World account and they will only need to remember their usernames and passwords (parents, guardians, or teachers might want to keep a log of them).
For the Coding Wand, it can be linked to the Kano App and used for multiple accounts. However, if you have more than one Coding Wand, keep in mind that they will need to be paired one at a time.
How do I start a coding challenge?
Click NEXT, and then read the tips at the top to learn as you go. The yellow beacon will show you where to focus. You drag and drop code blocks into place, clicking them together like jigsaw puzzle pieces.
Can I change what I’m making in the challenges and not follow the steps?
Yes. To do this, follow step-by-step as the instructions describe it – then right after, you can change your object, sound, size, color, name, number to anything you like.

How do I make the Coding Wand rumble, change physics, make music, draw and more?
If you’re not through with the challenges, don’t worry – they’re optional! Head over to Kano World to play with thousands of magical effects made by people around the world. Check out the Play section to see ones you can cast with no coding required.
Can I reset all challenges in the app that have been completed to show as new?
Once challenges have been completed with the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit, the only way to reset the challenges to show as new is to create a new Kano World login for the app.
Can I save my creations locally?
There's a neat feature built into Kano App called export. It will turn the blocks into text and downloads them so you can store them locally on your computer! Click the cog icon on the right side of the app and click export to save a .kcode file on your machine.
If you want to come back and continue working on your creation, go to the same menu but this time click import and choose the .kcode file from your computer.
