 DFRobot’s Boson kit is a set of modular electronic building blocks designed for young inventors, educators and tinkerers.

The Boson kit breaks down complicated circuits into simple, functional modules that are easy to understand. The kit requires no coding or soldering and is ideal as a STEM classroom teaching tool.

Boson modules have built-in magnets and can be used with screws, Velcro and even LEGO! Boson modules can be fixed on a wide variety of materials such as paper, wood, fabric, whiteboards or your own LEGO creations!

Boson modules are can be upgraded with our special Intel® Curie™ module. Use this module to give your creations machine learning and pattern matching capabilities.

No coding required! Just plug and play!

Risks and challenges

We are experienced team and have our own manufacturing facility. Manufacturing is always a very complex process and a delivery date may be delayed due to the modification of designs. If necessary, we will improve the final appearance of Boson blocks and extend the contents of Boson kits for enriching different ways of play.
