It starts small: with a seed of an idea, a jolt of inspiration, a nudge in a new direction. It starts with a problem to be solved, and a solution to be found. And more often than not, it starts with our children, the next generation of innovators.
The world needs innovation and problem-solving now more than ever. It’s why KiwiCo has been dedicated to providing creative, hands-on projects to encourage kids (and kids at heart!) to learn, explore, and grow for 10 years. More than 1,000 hours of development go into each of their crates, and their products are all kid-tested and approved for that moment of “Whoa, awesome.” A robot that can walk? A rocket launching into the air? The opportunities are endless — and possible with KiwiCo.
Follow along with these resources and be inspired to change the world — with small actions today, and big impact tomorrow.
Produced by Vox’s award-winning explanatory journalists, this Today, Explained spinoff series presents a smart, safe, fun — and much-needed — take on the big questions children are asking us.
