Toys that Turn Kids into Hackers (it’s a good thing)
Kristy Sevy founded FuzePlay, which makes hackable toys which teach kids coding and how stuff works. Instead of kids becoming glued to mind-numbing devices, FuzePlay prepares kids for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The company’s current trending product is the Zubi Flyer, which is a Frisbee with on-board programmable electronics. So kids build it, program it, and then go use it outside.
On this week’s show, Kristy Sevy tells us how she went from stay-at-home mom to a founder of a successful innovative startup. For more info on FuzePlay or if you’d like your own Zubi Flyer, visit: http://www.fuzeplay.io/
