Microduino, an award-winning global designer, developer, manufacturer, and leading seller of stackable electronic building blocks, related accessories and peripherals, and in-class science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning systems is proud to announce the launch of IdeaLab.
IdeaLab is their online community of makers, students, educators, teachers, designers, tinkerers, and DIYers. It’s the perfect place to:
- Showcase STEM projects, inventions, and to exchange ideas
- Provide a platform and resource for makers, etc., to learn about STEM/STEAM
- Have a forum to ask questions and get answers about creating STEM technology
- And so much more
As Bin Feng, CEO of Microduino, stated, “The launch of our new IdeaLab is a great way for our users, educators, students, inventors, and anyone who loves to create to showcase their inventions. At Microduino, we firmly support collaborating with other makers and sharing ideas. Our community is a haven for people who are deeply involved with STEM/STEAM learning or who are just getting started and want to interact with experienced makers. We have created a central hub for people to come together and feel the excitement of the growing STEM/STEAM movement.”

They recently released the next generation of STEM toys with their Itty Bitty Buggy. This code programmable toy combines play, creativity and logic and allows consumers to build and program four different creatures. Their Creative Expansion Pack, a neat package of 100 additional building pieces, compatible with Itty Bitty Buggy, is one of Microduino’s newer offerings.
With offices in China and Brazil and their U.S. headquarters in Westlake Village, California, Microduino is on the cutting edge of STEM/STEAM technology and products that encourage creativity and fun.
