MindWare Q-BA-Maze is an awesome playset for teaching youth to embrace their creativity and design engineering marvels. It’s a unique system of colorful cubes that interlock to form an amazing marble maze. Q-Ba-Maze 2.0 lets kids create marble maze sculptures in almost any design — animals, buildings, geometric shapes, simply letting their creativity be their guide. Q-Ba-Maze is unpredictable because the steel balls can travel in any direction since each cube opens on two sides, creating a live demonstration of probability, physics and art all in one.
Bloxels is a hands-on platform for kids to build, collaborate, and tell stories through video game creation. Students can use colored blocks to design their characters and settings to tell their own amazing stories. The game board is scanned using the free iPad app to make the creation come to life!

Ozobot is a little toy robot that blends the physical and digital worlds — and teaches kids programming. Ozobot can identify lines, colors, and codes on both digital surfaces, such as an iPad, and physical surfaces, such as paper.
KEVA Planks – Children discover the joy of creating original works of art or cleverly designed contraptions. Creativity brings joy into the lives of humans which is why the arts are so important. At the same time, future architects and engineers are discovering their aptitude for building at an early age. Young KEVA builders today will be building our world in a few years.
