The Core Of MakeKit

Make

Play

Learn

We are all makers, it is a great way to experience new things, to learn, and to build confidence.

Everything from attaching electrical wires, coding, using hand-held tools, or modern tools like 3D-printing, builds up the confidence and knowledge of what can be achieved. 

To have fun is at the core of all our kits. It is the very essence of why we do what we do. 

Making something exciting that gives you and all who try a smile.

We all know that when we have fun, we learn a lot faster. Great experiences also keep the knowledge stick.

We implement this learning philosophy in everything we do. 

Our Story

MakeKit was founded by Henning Pedersen and Steinar Holøs. Both have a genuine interest in technology and have a great passion for making education relevant, interesting and inspiring.

It all started with Makeadrone, by Henning Pedersen. He wanted everyone to experience the joy of building their own drone. In 2018 Henning and Steinar found that they together can use this foundation to make a difference in educational kits. They teamed up and founded MakeKit in 2019 with a goal of creating maker friendly kits for education.

The first kit to be launched was the Air:bit in the fall of 2019, and it was a huge success as the worlds first and only micro:bit drone. Air:bit is one of the most advanced and exciting kits for the micro:bit to this day.
