What People Are Saying About Thimble.io
Great resource for our teachers
Thimble sent the STEM kits for our students and got on a few calls to teach the material to our teachers. Really great experience!
Everyone is a fan
Our parents, students, and teachers are all very impressed with the materials and online classes. We have been using Thimble for 6 months and are big fans!
On-demand classes are impressive
We don't have any STEM teachers or programs; we added Thimble's on-demand classes and it has been a game changer. Endless classes the kids are really enjoying.
Virtual and in-person STEM learning
Really loving the ability to offer such high quality STEM choices to both our virtual and in-person students.
Thimble classes are perfect for my kids. I more or less threw them into the first class and they went to town. The zoom bomb session with the Nintendo game designer had my kids talking about their experience for days!
We've seen a lot of STEM interest growth by having the Thimble.io kits in our curriculum here at Caldwell. We have kids not only thinking, 'Hey, I can go straight into the workforce, but also, I could do this straight into college.' We've made those connections with the workforce and colleges in our area, showing them that this can be used here in real life.
We love taking Thimble classes in our household. I also run the Pinhead Institute, which is a Smithsonian Affiliate, and we're excited to bring hands-on learning to our students. They leave every class feeling inspired!
Lots of excitement here in the McGhee household. I'm 49 and almost quit my job to apply to MIT when my son and I made the WiFi robot move! I had visions of Mars Rover 2.0 and interplanetary jetpacks! This is so needed right now!
I have students that love coming to school every day because they're using Thimble.io kits, and they love working with robotics, putting things together, and learning how to use those step-by-step instructions.
As an educator, you get to see the aha! moment when students hear a noise come out of the machine or when they program it to talk to them. Getting to see those moments with those students has been priceless.
