Launched via worldwide a Kickstarter campaign, Mover Kit, the latest make it yourself kit from the award-winning London startup Technology Will Save Us, encourages imagination and play through movement and activity.
The device aims to teach children fundamental skills around programming, electronics and how to solve problems creatively with computational thinking.
Mover Kit is a wearable device that comes with all the components needed for assembly, including the brightly coloured LEDs, printed circuit board and rechargeable battery.
To accompany the wearable, Technology Will Save Us have created an inspiring and educational ‘Make’ platform filled with projects that helps kids invent and code with their Mover Kit.
The edtech start-up tested Mover Kit prototypes with over 300 kids, which led to an overwhelmingly positive reaction.
“Kids who might want to get involved in making with digital technologies are left behind,” said Bethany Koby, co-founder and CEO of Technology Will Save Us.
“We are on a mission to spark the creative imagination of young people using hands-on technology. Our award winning make it yourself kits and digital tools help kids, and the adults that love them, to make, play, code and invent using technology.”
The Mover Kit Kickstarter campaign runs until June 8, 2016.
