Very cool product. Seems like there are a lot of toys & apps focused on teaching kids computer science but not much focused on STEM. What inspired you to build RaceYa? What STEM fundamentals does RaceYa teach?

@harryraymond Thanks for asking Harry! (i replied from the wrong account at first!) STEM is about so much more than coding. It's about learning to combine Science, Tech, Engineering and Math to solve problems and create totally new solutions. I built RaceYa to give my kids a way into tech and design that wasn't locked inside a screen. To start with - RaceYa teaches basic physics, like friction torque etc in a super accessible and applied way. Then kids can explore creating their own 3D printable accessories (we even have content to help them do that!). As we grow and as they grow, we'll move into robotics too by making the cars programmable so they can play with building their own autonomous cars!

@adaoraudoji Thank you Adaora! I'm super proud of the execution too! It's been a lot of testing, iterating and learning with kids and teachers guiding the way. So now I feel really confident that we've got something great to share with kids everywhere.
