To inspire the next generation of engineers you need to give students of all ages rewarding projects that challenge them, and that's what we want to achieve with tinyTesla.
Medford, Massachusetts (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Yesterday, oneTesla, a company founded by MIT students that manufactures DIY musical Tesla coil kits, announced the launch of their newest product, tinyTesla. The tinyTesla kit allows builders to make their own desktop singing Tesla coil that generates high voltage and plays music using electricity. The kit was developed to be accessible to newcomers to electronics, whether they are students or hobbyists who want to learn more about engineering. Within 24 hours of launching the products on Kickstarter, the company has doubled their funding goal, and the pledges continue to rise.
Of the company’s new product launch, oneTesla co-founder Heidi Baumgartner said, “Our passion is making engineering education fun, and we hope that tinyTesla will encourage more people to try their hand at building electronics. To inspire the next generation of engineers you need to give students of all ages rewarding projects that challenge them, and that’s what we want to achieve with tinyTesla.”
The company has also simultaneously launched the oneTeslaTS kit, which shoots lightning nearly two feet long and is aimed towards hobbyists who already have some experience building and troubleshooting electronic circuits.
tinyTesla and oneTeslaTS are currently available for pre-order on the company’s Kickstarter page. Upon completion of the Kickstarter campaign, oneTesla will sell these educational kits at onetesla.com and will also investigate potential partnerships with schools and online retailers.
