LightUp Tesla Kit
LightUp combines the best of both worlds by bringing together an engaging hands-on electronics platform with an interactive iOS mobile app. With the included Bluetooth-enabled microcontroller block, the LightUp Tesla Kit is perfect for kids ready to build awesome projects that combine electronics with code. Drag-and-drop code blocks and guided tutorials make it easy. Kids can learn about the Internet of Things, and build exciting projects including a wireless room alarm, a jukebox, and a sunrise-triggered alarm.
The Tesla Kit contains everything needed to get started, but is also a great upgrade for those who already have the Edison Kit since all LightUp blocks are compatible with each other. With the power of code, the number of projects possible is only limited by a kid's imagination.
LightUp was founded by Josh, a teacher, and Tarun, an electrical engineer, who met at Stanford University while running educational workshops. They couldn't find a product that excited kids while teaching them the skills and concepts they'd need as the scientists, engineers, and innovators of the future.
LightUp teaches kids how to explore their world with electronics and code. Kids can build exciting projects by snapping together magnetic circuit blocks, and then use the LightUp Learning app (for iPad) to interactively learn important concepts. The app includes introductory projects to get started, with new project ideas added every week. LightUp Lens, the in-app augmented reality feature, helps kids out when things don't work, and even gives them X-ray vision by letting them see electricity flow! The LightUp Tesla Kit empowers kids to build the projects only they can dream up.
LightUp blocks included: Rechargeable Battery, Bluetooth Microcontroller, Speaker, Light Sensor, Momentary Switch, 5k Resistor, Wire blocks (7), Micro USB Cable.
For Ages: 5+
