With bMaker, our goal was to create a 360º solution that would enable children to work creatively on all the tech skills of primary and secondary education. This ecosystem included an interactive platform, digital content and robotic kits adapted for specific age groups.

Studying the target

To create the kits, industrial and mechanical design teams opted for a friendly, clean and functional design adapted to each age group. With the Zum Kit Junior, the components were protected by a semi-transparent outer casing, making them resistant to impacts and being dropped, whereas with the Zum Kit Advanced, they were kept visible to facilitate a more in-depth knowledge of the mechanics, electronics and design.

Designed for little hands

Another key factor in the Zum Kit Junior design was the psychomotor skills of the children. RJ9 connectors were selected to enable them to easily connect and disconnect the components and actuators. What’s more, they are joined together using contact closure strips, making it easy for little hands to connect them the way they want. This allows them to create infinite versions of their inventions and encourages their creativity.

Safety and reliability as key element

As the product is specifically for children, it was not possible to know exactly how it would be used. For this reason, safety was made top priority throughout the development process, from selecting suppliers and components to the testing design approach and the test plan.
