WitBlox To Launch An Educational App Witblox 2.0 To Encourage Tinkers - GADGET-INNOVATIONS

WitBlox, a Robotics Learning App, is launching an educational app Witblox 2.0 to encourage the young minds of tinkers. The features of this app are very similar to that of TikTok platform.

However, the purpose of launching this app is to engage the students with technical bend of mind and educate them on the development around Robotics. Witblox is an Ed-Tech Startup set up by IIT Bombay Alumni working in STEM Education Space which recently raised funding of 1.3 Cr from Mumbai Angels and Neotec Hub, an Ambuja Neotia Initiative.

The app has Video Tutorials on “How to Build Robots”, drones, DIY tech based projects along with shop option to buy the components and materials required to build those projects. Buying tinkering materials and components from the market has always been a challenging task for tinkers and parents. The COVID era has made it even more difficult to procure these.

Currently they are relying on e- commerce platforms for ordering parts and tinkering materials. The STEM toy market in India is estimated to be at $500 million as in 2020. The  Indian Government is promoting Tinkering in a big way by creating Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL) in schools. More than 5000 schools have invested in ATL to support students with innovative minds.
