We’re super inspired by Technology Will Save Us, a UK-based, design-forward start-up that gives families and kids opportunities to learn about technology and design through creativity. Their awesome DIY kits let kids create all kinds of fun and unexpected projects, like a handheld electronic game or a solar-powered watering system for their garden, (safely) using very grown-up tools. (Yes, your 10 year old can solder!) Even more exciting? TWSU will distribute the BBC micro:bit to over a million kids in the UK this fall. This cool tool has everything a budding techie needs, including a mini processor and an LED screen for basic programming and design. What a way to foster the “maker” generation! Visit the Tech Will Save Us website to learn more about this amazing company founded by artist, mom, and businesswoman Bethany Coby and designer, maker, and educator Daniel Hirschman.
