Meet the creators
The snap:bit is created by a family of software engineers from Bulgaria.
The idea of creating snap:bit sparked to Daddy Kaloyan and Mummy Reni while playing with their smart and lovely kids Plami and Marin. We enjoyed learning together about electricity and electronics with the Snap Circuits educational kit, and software programming with the BBC micro:bit. One day our kids asked if we can make the micro:bit control the Snap Circuits. And here we go – we quickly assembled a project with the help of a few cables with alligator clips.
Having a bunch of wires around was quite confusing for our little kids. So Daddy Kaloyan took his toolbox out and after a few days handcrafted the prototype of the snap:bit.
The “Wow! It works!” effect on our kids and the simple way of connecting the micro:bit with the Snap Circuits guaranteed more new hours of excitement in learning with fun.
Starting a small family business is a new adventure for our family – the one of enterpreneurship. We hope that snap:bit will bring as much joy in learning to many other families as it has done to us.
