Hands-On, Interest-Driven Kits

For Lifelong Learners

Building Kits Is So Much Fun For Everyone

One of the most effective ways to learn is by doing. Whether you are a kid or an adult, hands-on learning is the best way to build confidence, gain new skills, and understand how things work. It's also an environmentally positive approach because when you understand how an object works, and it breaks, you have a better idea of how to fix it instead of just tossing it in the trash.

Testimonials

Proud makers successfully built devices and art projects using our kits. Along the way, they learned simple things like how to light an LED or surprising things like how piezo works or more advanced skills like how to solder. They are researchers, government officials, students, teachers, and hobbyists that used their assembled kits on boats, at school, in the arctic, and more.

I hadn’t done any soldering in decades, but took it slowly and carefully (checking everything multiple times) and it worked! KitHub staff responded helpfully when I had questions. The instructions could use attention from a good technical editor, but generally made things clear enough.

I purchased these in order to have a fun activity during my son's birthday party. Children ages 4 to 11 loved this activity. The parents loved it too! We spent about 1.5 hours putting the robots together and decorating them. Children played with them for hours afterwards. Very fun activity!

I'm an adult, and i just bought it to play around. But it's so much fun, I'm going to get one for my 9 year-old nephew.

Who knew that electronics could be so creative. You think of it being a bunch of wires in a wall to turn on a switch but it can be really artistic.
