    The Giz Wiz Show 1641 for Sept 22nd 2017, Our124th Independent Production. 

    We're into our third year of Independent Production thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv/. You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help.  

    This week we look at the last three fun gadgets from the Family & Kids Tech Show, NYC. BUT the order of the show will be a little different. We'll still talk about five gadgets but not in the usual order. The explanation will be clear when you watch the show.

     

    At the “Tech Will Save You” display, they had about a dozen fun kits designed to spark imagination among kids 4 and up. Here's is a bit about the company and a link to dozens of their fun kits.

     

    We are on a mission to spark the creative imagination of young people using hands on technology. Our award winning make-it-yourself kits and digital tools help kids (and the adults that love them) to make, play, code and invent using technology. We started small, around our kitchen table, and have now built a company of 28 passionate designers, educators, engineers and problems solvers – obsessed with inspiring kids and empowering parents to become creators of technology. We have different make it yourself kits and hundreds of digital tools and projects to support kids in learning through play. We have sparked the imaginations of kids in over 87 countries around the world. We work closely with children to design our kits, engaging in large scale research projects before beginning on design & manufacture. We often get asked about our name and if we actually think technology will save us… The answer is that we believe diverse, creative and empowered kids and families will save us and technology will be at the heart of how they do this!
