We are a passionate team of thinkers, doers and makers who
believe in leveraging the power of technology and creativity to
liberate huge amounts of untapped human potential.
We do this by providing kids with tools that encourage empathy,
curiosity and play through the creative process of tinkering and
“making” in a hands-on manner.

KHD CORE TEAM
Curiosity-fueled learning and creative thinking are becoming the
most important traits to thrive in the 21st century.
Yet we have a school system that numbs curiosity and kills
creativity. Teaching kids to program at an early age is at the core
of solving this problem.
We believe that by giving kids tools to program the physical
world we can create the revolution needed to make every child
“Kids should learn
to program and
not be programmed”
We want to make open technologies accessible to every
child so that they can create the future they want to see. To
succeed in this, we need partners who share our values and
want to help us realize our goals.
We welcome ‘good spirit’ companies and organizations to
support our mission and become partners and associated
members of the Kids Hack Day community.
