Thimble is monthly subscription service, that delivers kits to build new electronic devices. Very first kit is a WiFi-enabled robot that you control with your phone, tablet, or laptop. The robot arrives with everything you need to build the project and a learning app you log into to follow instructions. The learning app provides step-by-step tutorials to help you throughout the construction process.
Thimble kits are kids and adults (ages 13 and up) – interested in building electronics on a monthly basis that want a guided path to learn through step-by-step instructions on the learning app.
Other projects in later months include quadcopters, alarm clocks, LED cubes, light control devices for your home, weather monitoring, and more.
This campaign owners did a pilot program with 12 students on this past summer. Before the program, none of the students had experience with electronics, soldering, or software engineering and after it, 9 of the students wanted to become engineers and further pursue careers in software and hardware.
