Product Description

MudWatt engages kids in science in a whole new way, using the power of mud! It harnesses the power of electricity-generating microbes naturally living in the soil beneath your feet. Kids experiment with different types of soil (and food from the fridge) to maximize their power. The free MudWatt Explorer App lets kids measure their power, track their MudWatt’s microbe growth, and unlock an awesome educational comic book. You can even power a digital clock and other electronics using the power of microbes!

Weeks of STEM Fun!

MudWatt is a bio-energy pet that runs on living microbes and offers long-term fun and learning. Kids maximize their MudWatt's power by experimenting with different soils, different foods from the fridge (like Gatorade), and different temperatures. Along the way, they learn about renewable energy, sustainability, microbiology, electricity, and more.

Bridging the Physical and Digital

As your microbes grow, the LED blinks faster and faster! The free MudWatt Explorer App lets kids measure the blinks to discover their MudWatt’s power level and microbe population. Kids track their MudWatt’s growth over the course of two weeks, and unlock a fun and educational comic! (Available for smartphones and tablets). If apps aren't your thing, there is also a calculator spreadsheet for tracking your data manually.


DIG

Any dirt will do! Your soil already has electricity-generating microbes living in it! Try out composts, topsoils, and sediments to see which is most powerful.

BUILD

Kids construct the MudWatt and learn a ton along the way. Moreover, kids blend creativity with science by designing their own experiments to maximize their power and microbe community.

ANALYZE + EXPAND

Beyond the amazing MudWatt Explorer App described above, kids can power a digital clock or connect multiple MudWatts together to try powering other electronics. Kids can also join our online community to share ideas and results with the world!


Award-Winning and Critically Acclaimed

The MudWatt is loved by kids young and old, from elementary school level all the way up to college level. This unique STEM kit has received outstanding reviews from kids, homeschoolers, teachers, and tinkerers alike!


About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Magical. STEM. Fun.

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

While digital technology can be a great educational tool, it risks cutting the connection that kids have with the natural world around them. We wanted to make sure kids stay grounded as they grow and learn. And what is more grounding than soil itself!?

What makes your product special?

First, MudWatt uniquely incorporates many STEM disciplines (including engineering, sustainability, energy, microbiology, and chemistry) into fun and memorable experimentation! Second, it bridges the gap between physical and digital, offering not only tangible play (the hardware), but also digital content (the App) that enhances learning. Lastly, it opens kids' minds to the unseen surprising world of microbes that live in the soil beneath their feet.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

The letters and emails we get from MudWatt users are the best part of our startup experience. Kids, parents and teachers really love the MudWatt. It has provided a gateway into STEM career paths for many of our users!
