What is EngStarter?

Each EngStarter is set of electronic components, preassembled circuit boards, and codes designed for easy integration to create projects to solve water, energy, and food problems. Each kit comes with sensors, controllers, and actuators which are specially designed on an simplistic platform and are suitable for use in fragile and displaced settings.

What’s in the Engineering Starter Kit?

The EngStarter kit includes its own printed classes, textbooks, videos, and instructions using informed design practices and research-driven engineering practices to support teachers to conduct engineering classes or even help students to learn independently; There are four kits within the EngStarter: the WaterBOX, SparkBOX, FoodBOX, and PlayBOX; An Android Mobile App is used to connect and control circuits through a cell phone; electronic toolkits are provided to help students to build their prototypes, and user access to the online platform allows access to online classes, quizzes, assessment, and more.

Making People Part of the Solution

Each EngStarter is set of electronic components, preassembled circuit boards, instructions, and codes designed for easy integration to create projects that allow students to solve water, energy, and food problems. It is also a compact, all-in-one education platform designed specifically for use in engineering courses in fragile and displace settings.

Who is our target?

Hobbyists or small group of students

A person or small group of students interested in using one or more EngStarter engineering applications (WaterBOX, FoodBOX, SparkBOX, and PlayBOX) to practice engineering skills and develop immediate solutions

Small classrooms (up to 15 students)

Small classrooms that are running or ready to launch courses in fragile and displaced regions. We also provide faculty training so that we teach instructors on how to boost classroom performance

Schools in fragile settings, displaced communities, and low income urban regions

Small schools with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs
