Posted February 4, 2016

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.

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.
