“65% of today’s kids will end up working in careers that haven’t even been invented yet,” continues Koby- Hirschmann, also a mother of two. “Many of these jobs will rely heavily on problem-solving skills and every industry (from creative to agriculture) will leverage technology. This rapidly iterating technology landscape motivates me to provide all children with the opportunity to test the boundaries of technology. What if kids could build the technology they use, and learn more about it in the process?”
Parents who have witnessed their kid’s tinkering gush online about Tech Will Save Us products and service:
“The electro dough kits are so much fun to play with that I’m not sure if my kids even realize how much they’re learning in the process.”
“Fantastic products and prompt delivery. Bought as a gift for a friend who loves to tinker with tech and it was thoroughly enjoyed! Amazing for adults and young ones alike.”
“I love the variety of the toys here – and the fact that they’re marketed to children, not specifically to girls or boys.”
