DFRobot Boson Kit is a set of coding-free electronic building blocks for young inventors, STEM educators and tinkerers.
The Boson kit breaks down complicated circuits into simple, functional modules that are easy to understand. The kit requires no coding or soldering and is ideal as a STEM classroom teaching tool. Boson modules have built-in magnets and can be used with screws, Velcro and even LEGO! Boson modules can be fixed on a wide variety of materials such as paper, wood, fabric, whiteboards or your own LEGO creations! Modules under different categories are intuitively coded in four colors.
