Did you know that girls start losing interest in STEM as early as age 8? We plan to change that with Linkitz: a modular, programmable toy that allows girls ages four to eight create and customize their own stylish wearables!
On May 5, 2015, Linkitz will officially launch on Kickstarter.
Why do you need Linkitz? Here’s why we and a few really smart people think so:
Linkitz is designed to fill a major gap in the electronic toy market, where few technology toys are marketed to young girls. Educators and developmental psychologists agree that STEM interest should be nurtured from a young age, when early experiences shape lives. Playing with Linkitz will inspire creative engagement with technology.
