If you would like to teach children more about building electronic projects and develop their problem-solving skills together with teaching them about electronics.
The new electronic Tinkering Kits for children has been designed around launched over on the Indiegogo website by the founder of the awesome Tinkering Labs. Watch the video below to learn more.
The Tinkering Kits for children project is currently looking to raise $50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Gever Tulley explains a little more behind the concept and his inspiration.
“As founder of Tinkering School, The Institute for Applied Tinkering and Brightworks, 10 years of Tinkering experience has taught me that kids can build anything, and through building, learn anything.
But not every kid can come to our school or camps. So we’ve started Tinkering Labs to make the problem-solving skills, knowledge and confidence that Tinkering enables available to all kids. Help us bring the pure joy of invention to a kid in your life by supporting the creation of our first kit: The Tinkering Labs ELECTRIC MOTORS CATALYST.
Because they are growing up in a world full of complex problems with no instruction booklet. Kids need experience working independently on open-ended projects that are goal-directed but unscripted. By activating their hands and their minds, Tinkering helps kids develop the skills, knowledge and grit necessary to become the innovators their generation is going to need.
• Problem-solving skills
• Adaptability and resilience
• Collaboration with peers
• An intuitive grasp of science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) principles
• The confidence that only comes from competence
