Latest STEM learning kits for kids combine technology and play dough

Kids can mould working musical instruments and robots using Technology Will Save Us’ new interactive learning kits based on conductive dough.

Launched in 2012 by Bethany Koby and Daniel Hirschmann, Tech Will Save Us targets the STEAM learning areas – a version of the common STEM acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, but broadened to include art.

Its latest kits, called Dough Universe, are designed to bring kids’ play-dough creations to life with sound, movement and lights.

Launched on Kickstarter – the same platform that the studio used to crowdfund its first-ever kit in 2013 – the Dough Universe is based upon the studio’s existing Electro Dough Kit.

The new launches are aimed at kids of four and over. They include a Squishy Sounds Kit that teaches kids how electricity creates sound by having them build keytars, keyboards and drums.
