BrainPad Classic has served well for years but is no longer supported. Please consider new products. The MakeCode interface is hosted at and will always be there but note that it no longer support project sharing.

Let’s Get Started

Take a look at the video below and follow the steps after to get going with the BrainPad in seconds!

First Connect the BrainPad

You will be programming the BrainPad to play a sound. This is the very first step towards changing your future. So go on, plug the BrainPad to your computer and follow the steps below.

Next Build the Program

Go to and start a new project by clicking the large plus sign under “My Projects”.

Click on the music tab and select the “play sound power up” block. Now drag it into the green “on start” block on the main screen.

Your computer will now generate a sound through the BrainPad simulator. You are now in charge of the buzzer!

Prepare the BrainPad

Press and hold the reset button for 3 seconds. The LightBulb will turn green.

This step activates the BrainPad “loader”, which is used to load a program onto the BrainPad. Your PC will now detect a new drive, called “BrainPad”.

Finally Download the Program

Click download and save the file on the “BrainPad” drive. The Green light will flash for a moment and the BrainPad will make the same sound you heard on the computer earlier.
