Tech Toys for Tots

Tools foster a healthy, creative relationship with technology   Kids are surrounded by technology these days, thanks to mobile devices, video game platforms and more. However, these devices don’t necessarily foster growth and creativity – defining attributes that could lead children into a future career role within the expansive industry of technology. Below we’re providing a few alternative toys that will spark their interests in new ways.   Tech Will Save Us Synth Kit (techwillsaveus.com/shop/synth-kit) The company Tech Will Save Us provides kits that allow children to better understand technology by building it themselves. For the musically inclined, it has developed a build-your-own synthesizer kit to demonstrate how sounds and frequency are electronically manipulated.   Kano Computer Kit (kano.me/row/store/products/computer-kit) The Kano Computer Kit, developed by Kano – a leading educator in coding for youth – allows kids to create their own personal, functional computer utilizing a Raspberry Pi single-board computer.   3doodler Pen (the3doodler.com/) 3doodler has crafted a simple-to-use 3D printing pen that mimics the technology within commercial 3D printers. Utilizing a plastic-like compound, kids can sculpt their own 3D creations with the push of a button.
