Maker Story

Creative Spark

Learn about technology in a way that fuses fun and creativity. That’s the philosophy behind the DIY electronic building kits from Open Wire Lab (aka OWL).

Each kit teaches basic electronics in an approachable way, then sparks individual ideas about how the technology can be used. OWL asks kids to use their imagination to integrate their self-built electronics into other projects, whether an art piece, costume, or anything else they can dream up.

OWL founder Balam Soto came to the U.S. from Guatemala, where he was already an award winning artist. He started learning about technology and was fascinated. Soon, his art featured scientific components.

All OWL kits are designed to blend technology and creativity, inspired by Soto’s own work. Building a functional piece of electronics is just the beginning. After that, there’s no limit to the ingenuity.
