We're on Kickstarter!

Our Goals

475 Kits is a company dedicated to making engineering accessible. By designing monthly project kits which utilize grassroots hacking as well as modern maker tools we invite people of all ages and economic demographics into the engineering space. Each kit includes three unique projects, as well as curriculum and learning resources for our makers to create and expand upon their own ideas.

Fun

475 Kits wants to make learning fun and not something that must be monitored or facilitated by adults.

Accessible

475 Kits are designed to remove the learning barrier of getting into tech and engineering fields to provide a more informed and diverse workforce to industry.

Educational

At 475 Kits we aim to change the way learning is thought about, and provide the tools and opportunities to allow learners to take their education into their own hands.
