These fashionable Jewelbots bracelets actually teach pre-teen girls the basics of coding. And it looks super fun. Once again I’m so happy more companies are helping to introduce the world of STEM to young girls. I only wish this kind of thing was around when I was younger.
The bracelet itself is a fairly simple design with one button and four different colored LED lights. The super fun part comes in when it’s paired with the iPhone or Android app. Girls can program a wide variety of functions that include adding their friends to color-coded groups so the bracelet will light up when nearby. “Secret” messages can be also sent to friends through vibration sequences.

The Jewelbots Kickstarter campaign soared passed its goal quickly, but there’s still time to get in on the deal early.
