Electronic building blocks How did you come up with the idea for this product? As STEM teachers, we looked everywhere for a fun tool to help us teach kids basic circuitry. When we couldn't find the simple, engaging STEM toy we imagined, we decided to make it ourselves. What makes your product special? Circuit Cubes work with all major brands of building bricks. The modular design and magnetic connections make them both simple and flexible to use with our kits, your own brick sets, and other toys. What has been the best part of your startup experience? Watching kids use our Cubes to bring their own creations to life with light, sound, and motion—and then pull them apart and make something new. And of course, playing with the toys ourselves.
