Girl Scouts are Great Tinkerers!

After weeks of tweaking, in December 2014 we had an Electric Motors Catalyst prototype ready for a live test with real kids. We hand-built 20 kits and brought them to a girl scout troop meeting in San Mateo, California, not knowing what would happen. Would the girls engage with the challenges? Would it be fun? Would they learn anything?

45 minutes later we had our answer, and in April of 2015 we launched Tinkering Labs. These girls showed us that the Catalyst really could help kids discover the pure joy of invention.  Thank you Girl Scouts!
