EWH Kits are fun and challenging hands-on activities that help students learn important concepts needed by both engineers and technicians. Once a Kit is assembled it can be used for teaching additional concepts in the classroom or lab, or even returned to EWH to be used in teaching technicians and future engineers in low-resource environments.

Kits can also be used for more advanced projects - see our Kit Projects for more details. If you are interested in STEM activities for younger students, check out our TeachBME webpage.
