Find out how to download the right version of Bolt for your computer

Bolt is a desktop program that allows the Creative Coder Kit to communicate with our coding platform (Make), when it is connected to the computer. Before trying to download Bolt , check your computer is a supported device.

Things are slightly different for home and school users, so we have separate instructions for each case below.

Home users

To download Bolt for your home computer, head over to the coding page and click the play button, which can be found in the menu bar in the top-left of the screen. This will offer you the option to download Bolt, and downloads the correct version of Bolt for your operating system.

School users

If you are using the Creative Coder Kits in a school or a similar environment (installing for multiple users across a secure network), please see our separate guide on Using the Creative Coder in Schools.
