-Introduces Kids to the Art of Electronics at an early age
-Promotes Gender Equality on STEM fields
-Encourage kids to take part in Nature Conservation
With the Monarch Butterfly survival kit young scientists will learn the basic concept of Electronics, Robotics and Electricity by building a Solar Powered Robotic Butterfly that flaps its wings using muscle wires (AKA shape memory metal alloy) and a circuit based in the popular (and young engineer’s favorite) 555 timer chip.
They will also learn about the importance of Gender Equality in STEM fields. Ruby, the main character in the instructional comic book, is a supper smart nine-years-old nature lover and a science enthusiast that will guide us step-by-step with the help of STEM heroines such as Rachel Carson, Alice Hamilton and Jane C. Wright among others.
