MESH Block Kit

Build STEAM skills through invention and making with MESH blocks.

dotted border short
  • Build gadgets with MESH make-to-learn projects that explore STEAM topics like coding, engineering, design, and the Internet of Things (coding or electronics experience is not necessary).
  • 7 app-enabled MESH blocks (Included: an LED, a wireless button, a motion sensor, an accelerometer, a light sensor, a temperature and humidity sensor, and a general purpose input/output.)
  • Free MESH visual coding app exposes students to computational thinking, logic, and reasoning.
  • Compatible with littleBits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and actuators (e.g, a servo or a DC motor)
  • Recommended for ages 8+ and great for groups of 2-4 students.

MESH uses visual coding to program real world objects and gadgets.

We believe that the right tool can make a huge difference in learning. MESH is designed to make it easy and fun for any student to discover STEAM skills and technology. Every step of the way we give students the support to imagine, experiment, and build gadgets without any special skills using our MESH blocks, app, and online project guides.

While following their creativity, students can program gadgets in the MESH visual coding app and use MESH blocks to add functionality to the gadgets they've invented. Students can create anything from a “fitness” tracking headband to an interactive candle and along the way learn about computational thinking, electronics, internet technology, and design.

Problem Solving

Encourage critical thinking with hands-on projects that introduce real world problems and use new skills to design, prototype, and build a gadget solution.

EDU_features01

STEAM Skills

Students discover computational thinking, electronics, engineering, and design in each MESH project as they build one-of-a-kind gadgets such as a remote-controlled pet feeder.

EDU_features02

Creativity & Innovation

Unleash students' creativity with make-to-learn projects like creating a motion-activated, singing teddy bear, a self-feeding pet bowl, or even a smart light controller.

EDU_features03
MESH takes a playful and accessible approach to programming and to logic and hardware/software interaction, two topics of growing importance. The product enables users to interact directly with the virtual and physical world by trial and error.
