It’s no surprise that STEM programs are taking off in schools across the United States. Just consider the amount of technology at the hands of our kids in comparison to 20 years ago. There are a number of companies looking to take advantage of this surging trend. Roboterra is aiming to be right in the mix with its new robotics kit. Designed with “all ages” in mind, this K’NEX meets coding system is bound to be a hit with both educators and students.
Bowers & Wilkins makes some of the most beautiful audio products on the market today. Tough thing is, we rarely see a price drop. Amazon is discounting a few today with free shipping on each piece of equipment. Grab some new gear for yourself or Dad!
Headlining today’s selection is the B&W T7 Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $299.99. It typically sells for $350. This deal is the lowest that we’ve seen since it was released back in the fall.

It typically sells for $60 and today’s deal is the lowest price we’ve tracked by more than $10.

Keep in mind that Apple’s Smart Battery Case costs $99 and only has a slightly larger battery (1877mAh). Rated 4 out of 5 stars from more than 50 Amazon reviewers.
