What is Invention Engine?

Invention Engine is a programmable hardware that connects different Invention Engine ‘bits’ to cardboard. These bits can be programed online to bring your cardboard creation to life!

From LED lights, buttons, sensors and more, these bits can be added to a cardboard box to allow learning in areas across the curriculum. Coding is done with simple block coding and the flexibility of cardboard allows accessibility for all types of learners.
