KinetiKits: STEAM Educational Kits

In today’s world, it’s crucial to nurture and develop students’ creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. It’s even more important to do so sustainably.  KinetiKits, the brainchild of Will and Denise Davy, is a Brisbane-based company that designs, creates, and sells STEAM educational kits that inspire students to think creatively, critically, and sustainably. Their kits are linked with science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics areas of the Australian curriculum, making them perfect for STEM-style learning programs.

I have worked with these kits with my STEMies Club girls over the years with huge positive responses. Link to past post here. This link is to the first time I met Will 😊

Each KinetiKit comes with concise instructions that are easy to follow, but there is also space for variation and creativity. This allows students to explore and experiment while developing higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills.

Will Davy, the Brisbane-based artist behind KinetiKits, has a passion for creating sculptures from everyday objects such as a tin can. Will says that the culture of making beautiful things from everyday objects started when he lived in Africa.

Denise Davy has over 22 years of experience as an educator and has spent time in curriculum development, which means that she knows how to create educational materials that are engaging, effective and address the curriculum.

KinetiKits offers the perfect combination of education, creativity, and sustainability. They provide students with an opportunity to learn while having fun and exploring their imaginations. KinetiKits will inspire students to think outside the box and develop crucial skills that will serve them well in the future.
