Twin Science & Robotics
Twin Science & Robotics is a new generation educational experience that upskills children with physical and digital products. We believe that every child is born with a strong sense of curiosity that embodies an urge for discovery and invention.

We created Twin with the passion that we could spark children’s innate power of curiosity and introduce ongoing fun learning experience given the right tools and platforms.
Twin introduces science and technology concepts to children, then allows them to question, to be creative, to experiment, to learn & unlearn, and to be resilient. We provide 2 platforms: Robotics Kits and Digital Application.
Different concepts of Twin robotics kits consist of electronic modules that could easily be attached with magnets. The pieces are also LEGO-compatible.
Every kit has a set of readily available experiments to spark curiosity. The number of experiments is only limited by one’s creativity! Twin digital application consists of interdisciplinary courses that expose the kids to scientific concepts.
This platform also provides a community, where Twinners can share and celebrate their experiments and learn together. In the advanced stages, using patterns of the children from their digital journey, Twin will offer a customized learning path for each child.

Skills Matter is a hyper active, 9 year old startup, sustaining a community of over 35,000 passionate developers in London and some 200,000 world wide. Our mission is to help members in our community learn and share skills to write better software.
We do so by staying right on top and ahead of trends. We weed through them and serve the relevant ideas, technologies and innovations to our community through our expert-led talks, conferences, training courses, articles, hackatons, meetups….
In addition to organising our own events, we help realise events by many software and programming related meetup groups in London. Some of these groups prefer to be left to their own devices – so we help them by providing space to meet, to converge, to cross pollinate.
Other groups rely on our support to introduce them to some of the most brilliant experts, by filming their talks, presentations or meetups (including demo-ed code, slides and film footage) or they like us to help grow their community… Besides playing host to many meetup groups, we also run our very own In the Brain Series, comprising of talks by the world’s most innovative minds, often the creators of new ideas or practices, who we invite over to London to share their expertise, skills and Brain with our community.
These talks are free and we often run 2 or 3 different talks each night (except Friday, when our team goes for a drink 🙂 If you learned something new at any of our talks, the deal is you try it out at work or on your pet project and, if you learn something new whilst doing so, we hope you come back to share what you’ve learned with others in our community! We also run some 25 different conferences every year, both in London and New York. We ussually run a conference when we have discovered a new trend of ideas, technology or practice – we believe in it – and are keen to spread the word …
Our 1 or 2 day eXchanges offer a brilliant opportunity to learn all about these in a small, intimate environment where speakers and attendees mingle, share skills and attend talks. With plenty of breaks and a speaker delegate ratio of 1:6, you can really spend time directly with the creators – to learn what the technology is now, but also where it is going.
