16Hertz is revolutionizing STEM education, with a focus on hands-on, cutting-edge technologies and approaches. We are growing and diversifying the next generation of STEM innovators.
TWO YEARS AGO London startup Gravity showed off a wild concept for creating 3-D forms using augmented reality software. In the demo, a designer wearing AR glasses wielded an Arduino-connected pad and pen. As he drew on the plastic pad, his drawing appeared as a 3-D object that could be viewed and manipulated almost as though it was floating in air. The compelling concept hinted at how augmented (and virtual) reality could someday be as natural a creative tool as basic pen and paper.

Build in Progress is designed to help you document your project as you’re developing it. You’ll want to have a camera on hand to capture how your design progresses each step of the way.This type of process documentation can be really helpful, both for yourself to look back on and for others that are building similar projects!
You can use your BBC micro:bit for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – the possibilities are endless. The micro:bit is a handheld, fully programmable computer being given free to every Year 7 or equivalent child across the UK. It’s 70 times smaller and 18 times faster than the original BBC Micro computers used in schools in the early 1980s.
This little device has an awful lot of features, like 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. Your BBC micro:bit can detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading in, and it can use a low energy Bluetooth connection to interact with other devices and the Internet – clever!
I’ve set out to learn more about the Internet of Things, using my favorite childhood toy, Lego! I will combine my passion for computers and electronics to build an interactive Lego city, just because I can. There have already been several challenges and accomplishments with this project, which is why I thought it would be helpful to share my experiences with the world.This blog will be a collection of circuit projects, coding examples, Lego building, and whatever else I find amusing along the way.If you have ideas or product you would like to donate to the project, please reach out!

An education experience is more than just what happens in the classroom. Let’s follow our curiosity and keep exploring together. We’ve taken it to space but we think it can go even further. That’s because every curious mind that has impactful experiences with STEM has the potential to go one step beyond anything anyone’s imagined yet. That’s what we get excited about—providing groundbreaking collaborative tools, community and support that are a natural fit in the classroom but can take those possibilities anywhere. We’re here to help make sure the adventure is a fun (and powerful) one.
We wanted to design a 3D printing device that could be used within minutes, without needing any technical knowledge, software or computers. We also wanted it to be affordable as well as fun, so that anyone could 3Doodle! Compact and easy to use, the 3Doodler allows you to literally draw in the air – whether freestyle 3D sketching or tracing shapes from templates to make larger structures and objects.
