What I am
I’m a range of creative tech kits for 4-12 year old kids; I believe every hero starts somewhere, whether it’s squishing sculptures, sewing circuits, or crafting and coding.
My feature kits:
Sew & Glow: Enables kids to design and build glowing badges that light up at the touch of a button - PING!
Light Racer: Kids build their own wireless bike lights which flash as they ride, learning about capacitors, and wireless coils.
Creative Coder: Introduces kids to coding through play; kids can program the kit to react to their movement.
Electro Dough: Introduces basics of electricity through play; kids can make creations with the dough that buzz and light up!
How I work
Each of my kits has basic instructions in it - and all incorporate both creativity and lessons about STEAM fundamentals. For example, with Sew & Glow, kids design and build their badges … sew simple circuits with conductive electro-thread, and light up their creations. They use practical crafting skills to create glowing masterpieces, with endless new designs and combinations.
I was created in 2012 with a mission to make every kid feel like a hero and to bring coding down to earth - to make it messy, cool, and creative. I want to show moms, dads, and grandparents that tech-time doesn’t have to mean screen time … and that skills like sewing and drawing are still part of technology. I started with some local workshops, teaching everything from basic electronics to coding - and realized that kids learn more when they feel inspired to make something amazing. And hence, my kits were born!
