About

              Yes2Science Inspiring Passion for Learning

Stimulating the imagination of children is the best way to create a love for learning. The Yes2Science MagicMotor(TM) kit is easy to assemble and is a great way to introduce kids to the principles of electricity and magnetism. There is a beautiful story about Albert Einstein as a child. Einstein's father gave him a compass at age 5. This caused young Einstein to wonder about the invisible force of magnetism. This small gift from his father may have changed the world. Passion for learning can be a powerful force!

The Magic Motor platform (TM) can be used to make a simple motor within minutes. It was developed by a team with a passion for science and teaching. This is a great way to inspire kids to learn about science. Teaching material about the principles of the motor are included. 

We have designed and tested the platform and now we need a 3D printer to manufacture the caps. The kit will include instructions on how to assemble the motor and information about the science behind how it actually works. Your backing will support our mission to empower kids with a passion for science. The money raised will be used to purchase equipment for production, developing instructional content and to fund additional design modifications. Our backers will also get a FREE subscription to the Yes2Science Newsletter (TM) when it is launched. Learn about the wonders of science with Yes2Science!

Risks and challenges

The Magic Motor(TM) is constantly improving. The proprietary base platform makes it easy to use. However, we do plan to experiment with new designs for the caps before shipping. Our current caps are 3D printed and depending on how many supporters we have we may outsource the production. All caps will be inspected by the Yes2Science team before we ship to ensure that they meet our quality standards. Unexpected delays could occur if there is an issue with the supply chain for any of the components. However, we anticipate that the product will be produced well in advance of the shipping date to ensure that any quality &/or supply chain issues can be resolved in time to enable delivery of the Magic Motor(TM) on time. We anticipate shipping the product in the early fall shortly after completion of the Kickstarter campaign. Thanks for your interest in our mission!
