Project-Based Learning Toolkits

At Blueinno, we empower kids to innovate through project-based learning with real prototypes, so that kids can learn with fun. So, we have designed a series of project-based learning toolkits for them to address various human challenges and community needs, through which they can learn and grow.

The series includes 3 toolkits for different themes: 1) domestic gardening system, 2) automatic trash bin, and 3) self-driving robotic car. Each of them helps kids to understand and try to address different sustainable development goals (SDGs) advocated by the United Nations, from climate change, to sustainable cities and communities.

Self-driving Robotic Car

Self-driving has been a key technology in the future. Robots will also dominate smart cities and our daily life. In this toolkit, kids are learning both in one go. With the ultrasonic sensor, they will experience how a car can dodge obstacles on its way. Putting all the parts together as a robotic car can also learn a great deal about the fundamental robotic mechanism.

By playing with other kids, they can also put their robotic cars together to simulate the city traffic, and think about how to build a smart city and manage them to achieve zero-accident on the road. Or they can load an air sterilizer to help their mum to sterilize the home by moving their robots around!

The SDGs Intended to address:

  1. #3: Good health and well-being
  2. #4: Quality education
  3. #9: Industry, innovation, and infrastructure

Domestic Gardening System

Food has become a crisis nowadays with the ever-growing of the human population. Not only can urban farming provide additional food supplies, it can also green our community, relieve pollution, and increase citizens' awareness about environmental protection.

Equipped with the soil sensor, LED lights, an OLED, and a fan, kids can learn how to detect the humidity in the soil and temperature in the air for growing their plants under the optimal conditions. They can also decorate their plant with creative drawing on the ceramic pot.

They can record the ideal condition for each kind of plant through experiment, and gain a great deal of satisfaction by witnessing their own household harvest be served at the dinner table! More importantly, they come to know although growing plants brings a lot of fun, patience and time are required. Then they learn how important it is to protect nature.

The SDGs Intended to address:

  1. #2: Zero hunger
  2. #4: Quality education
  3. #11: Sustainable cities and communities

Automatic Trash Bin

With the outbreak of the pandemic, hygiene and sanitation are never over-emphasized. How can we teach our kids about the concept of keeping hands clean and off the dirt through engineering projects? A trash bin that opens automatically with the sensor can do!

Not only can kids learn about how to keep themselves and their living environment clean, they can also understand a lot of engineering concepts and skills, such as the principle of the motor, electricity, and the touch sensor. Also, the trash bin can also remind them of responsible production and consumption as global citizens.

Kids can also unleash their creativity to design their products more than a bin. Some of them take the bin as a crate for a pitch-pot game with other kids with different sensor settings. No matter how kids are innovating with the toolkits, it always results in a lot of fun!

The SDGs Intended to address:

  1. #4: Quality education
  2. #11: Sustainable cities and communities
  3. #12: Responsible consumption and production

What's more!

All the toolkits are equipped with either micro:bit or Arduino (with the Blueinno Blocks), so that kids can learn how to code easily though a block-based programming environment. Please contact us for details if you are interested in knowing more.
