It is estimated that 65% of kids in school today will have jobs that do not exist yet. So how do parents and educators prepare kids for this future?
Tech Will Save Us is an award-winning company building a generation of digital creators, not just consumers. They have developed a range of toys all focused on learning through technology and play.

Their products range from £20-£75 and include play experiences like electronic play-dough and thirsty plant detectors, all the way to wearables that kids can program and invent with.
