We believe that education starts at home. Unfortunately, most parents don’t know what kind of educational products and experiences to provide their children to pique their curiosity in STEM.  It’s a big problem when kids today don’t know what engineering or computer science even mean. 

Our founder, Oscar Pedroso, experienced this when he was in school. So he and his team made it a mission of theirs to ensure all students (regardless of background) are aware of the many educational paths and career opportunities that exist.  So many kids have the potential to be the next Elon Musk and we’re going to help make that happen!

Our Team

 You’ve heard it before and we’ll say it again: 

No one can take your education away from you. 

We created Thimble to inspire kids and make them aware of the educational and career opportunities that we as individuals did not have growing up.

We were born out of a Startup Weekend, Startup Next, and flourished at various Maker Faires where we connected with parents, hobbyists, and educators. Through initial conversations with early customers, we decided to put our idea to the test by launching on Kickstarter which gave us the wings we needed to launch in 50 US states and 40 countries.  

We’re always moving forward and we love what we do. We’re a passionate bunch of educators, hardwarians, and hackers making education better one day at a time. If you’d like to shoot us a note, reach out at team@thimble.io

We have offices in Buffalo, NY and New York City.
