Tutora posted the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017. I have decided to post re each, and we start with #16 on the list:

16. Microduino – DIY Electronics for Makers of All Ages

As nominated by Nikolaos Chatzopoulos of Tech Trends 4 Teachers.

Microduino designs and manufacturers digital electronic building blocks which are connectable to a large selection of digital input and digital/analog output devices. Compatible with Arduino, the Microduino Series blocks are packaged in multi-piece kits that allow users to build, animate and control objects that they construct. Kits also include interactive components that sense physical attributes and output devices. In its most popular form, mCookies are stackable, magnetically and electronically connectable and colour-coded to easily identify the functional family type.

mCookies are physically compatible with LEGO blocks. Connected in stacks, mCookies are available into the consumer, maker space and educational markets as components and/or in convenient kits such as the Microduino ‘Itty Bitty City’.

Microduino recent awards include Time Magazine named Microduino 1 of the top 5 STEM education kits to teach kids engineering and coding, Gold winners of the 2016 IDEA awards by the IDSA. Microduino modules are on permanent display at the Henry Ford museum of Innovation, One of the ‘Five Best Things’ from the World Maker Faire.
