You love all things tech. You want to rediscover your inner inventor. You’re itching to build something new, but you’re not sure where to start. Does this sound like you or someone you know? Then you need Thimble!

Thimble uses hands-on projects to teach you what you won’t find in a textbook: real-world electronics and programming. As you progress from project to project, you’ll grow your skills from the fundamentals all the way to building and coding your own inventions.

“Not Just for Kids”

– Werner Vogels, CTO of and Thimble customer

It’s human nature to explore, share, and create. Somewhere along the way, life happens, and we forget about those desires that came so easily to us when we were kids. As adults, we don’t always have the tools to express our interest in being creative and making something. Thimble kits are more than just a learning tool for children. We design every project to help you explore, create, and recharge your curiosity for the world.

  • Thanks to you guys, I’ve been able to get my two kids excited about engineering. For a while, I didn’t think it was possible because they’re glued to their phones. The kits are packaged beautifully and the tutorials are easy to understand. My oldest son is now trying to build his own 3D printer. Thanks for inspiring him!

  • These are the best kits on the market, hands down! I’ve been a STEM education teacher for over 10 years. I love that each project is different in nature and that the tutorials are taught by the founders themselves. My 7th grade students are learning real skills and have been able to apply some of their schooling outside of the classroom. We are looking forward to building many more projects! Thank you!

  • Lots of excitement here in the McGhee household! I’m 49 and almost quit my job to apply to MIT when my son and I made the robot move! I had visions of Mars Rover 2.0 and interplanetary jet packs! This is such a great idea!
