About Us

Microduino’s IdeaLab is a platform to encourage community amongst our users. It is here that we manage and distribute digital content related to STEM/STEAM education and provide makers, educators and DIY tinkerers with a place to share their inventions!

Microduino was founded in 2012 and has emerged as a global leader in developing STEM/STEAM educational applications on six continents. Since our inception, our growth has been exponential, with offices in China and Brazil. Our US headquarters are in Westlake Village, California.

Microduino is an award-winning global designer, developer, manufacturer and seller of stackable electronic building blocks. We provide a complete line of related accessories and peripherals, and in-class science, technology, engineer, and mathematics (STEM) learning systems. Our vision and goal is to encourage and enhance inventors’ creativity, imagination, and ingenuity through project-based learning.

With tailored offerings for individual consumers and academic institutions, Microduino offers a broad range of modules, sensors, and project kits. By using our product kits in the classroom, educators and students have many opportunities to improve and sharpen their critical thinking skills and problem-solving abilities. Creators and makers are able to bring their inspirational and pioneering concepts to life.

Because of their ease of use, unique patented hardware design, and nearly unlimited applications and configurations, Microduino products have spawned a passionate and highly-innovative worldwide community of students, faculty members, makers, hobbyists, engineers, and electronics enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds, and skill sets.

We are proud to be lowering the barriers to STEAM education, with over a million users of our products, inclusive of students as young as 5 years old through college-aged and beyond!

Members of the Microduino community – students and individuals — have conceived and created an extraordinary array of impressive and impactful projects for real-life use, including 3D printers, smart music players, gloves that translate foreign languages, miniature cell phones, water pollution detectors, and many more.
