Facilitate creative problem-solving, combining electronic building blocks with approachable drag-and-drop block programming with this kit. It brings coding into the real world, keeps students hyper-engaged as they build and play their own fun games, and gives them a foundation of coding as a creative tool that can power innovative inventions.
Students get started inventing four interactive games: tug-of-war, hot potato, ultimate shootout, and rockstar guitar. From there they can customize the code, and even create new, unique inventions and games. During gameplay, students develop coding & engineering skills as they embrace failure, think critically, make their own rules, and collaborate. Plus, the kit was co-designed with teachers, for teachers. This ensures it's easy to integrate into any curriculum, makerspace, or library, and aligns to Next Generation Science Standards & Computer Science Standards.

"The Solar Science Station is a non-soldering solar USB charger. Use it as a tool for recording solar data in the classroom and as a power supply for gadgets. We've designed it around a large 6V 200mA solar cell that sits on a rotating axis (with degree measures), so you can adjust the angle. We have also engraved degree measures on the side. Record heaps of scientific data by having students measure the angle in degrees, the time of day, and the voltage output on the LED Voltmeter display!
The kit can be assembled with only a screw driver and wire stripper, which means it is 100% reusable."
