Twin Science's Sets are electronic magnetic modules that can easily connect to each other and to other toys, very similarly to the way LEGO block connect. "Twin supports children who do not have the opportunity to access the 'ed-tech' materials," explains co-founder Asude Altintas.
Twin is sold at retail stores to support sustainability and supplies robots to disadvantaged schools through B2B sales and other project-based revenues. In just two years since launch, the company has managed to be self-sustaining and is already targeting future growth: "Our goal is to reach 250,000 students, 1,000 teachers and 750 schools before the end of the year".
