DIY Kit That Encourages Kids to Code
on 01 June 2016
London-based Technology Will Save Us has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for their latest DIY kit: The Mover. Encouraging kids of all genders to learn and play at the same time, The Mover Kit includes a core unit, circuit board, accelerometer, magnetometer and eight LED lights—which can be programmed in countless ways after assembly. TWSU co-founder and CEO, Bethany Koby tells Core77, "While kids are avid consumers of technology, they can find creating and making with it complex and scary. Kids who might want to get involved in making with digital technologies are getting left behind." This DIY wearable makes learning about electronics, programming and problem solving fun—and is all about experimenting.
