With the amount of screens kids are now subjected to on a regular basis, it can be difficult to get them outside -- which is where this wildlife camera comes in. The Wildlife Cam Kit from Naturebytes is the best of both worlds as it teaches children about technology in nature. The user-constructed camera is heat sensitive and powered by Raspberry Pi to take sneaky HD photos of wildlife.

Currently seeking funds on Kickstarter, the wildlife camera captures the activity of garden dwellers such as squirrels, chipmunks and birds. The kit comes with batteries, chargers, Raspberry Pi computer, Pi Cam, sensors and weatherproof case. This means young people aren't just learning about the outdoors, but also gain skills in coding, computing and 3D design.
