The 'Oomiyu' robot owl maker kit is a fun, interactive way for kids to learn about STEM, while also creating a toy that's inherently for them rather than just out of a box. The 'Oomiyu' consists of a paper owl and an Arduino unit in the base that enables young makers to customize what the toy is possible of doing. Kids can get started by utilizing the 'Oomiyu' with pre-programmed games and behaviors before getting further involved and programming the toy.

The 'Oomiyu' owl robot maker kit helps introduce the concept of computer technology and hacking in a fun, friendly way that doesn't seem too intimidating to understand from the start. This helps to make it a great option for parents to help kids get ready for learning about programming and beyond in school.
