EduKits exists to inspire the next generation of thinkers, dreamers, and creators.
We’re the brainchild of a Year 8 high school student (yes, you read that right). Michael Nixon was just 13 when he launched EduKits out of Wagga Wagga, a regional town in Australia. Michael’s goal for EduKits was to share his passion for technology with other children and teenagers around the world.
Since our humble beginnings, we’ve gone on to launch workshops, resources, software and kits to an expansive user base in over 100 countries around the world. EduKits continues to inspire young minds to learn important skills and contribute to the next wave of global innovation.
We offer innovative, educational products for the home and classroom. Our range caters to a wide variety of ages and experience levels. We strive to make accessible, inclusive products.
EduKits build and distribute powerful, intuitive software designed to accelerate learning. Our flagship solution, Code Kit, offers Arduino drag-and-drop coding on the web and desktop.
Our broad range of tech-focused workshops are delivered online and in-person. We offer general consumer workshops in addition to tailored corporate solutions and events.
