|Dr. Mark Brickley - The founder of Minty Geek
"I have always had an interest in electronics and mints and thought what better way to make a living than combining the two? In all seriousness though I founded Minty Geek to develop innovative projects that encourage exploring the world of electronics for the sheer fun of doing so. Like the ubiquitous mint our projects aim to be fresh, sweet, and brilliant value."
|Emily Lawrie - Product Developer
"Being one of the initial testers of the minty geek Electronic Lab 101 kit, I was completely sold on this amazing idea and spent 2 weeks eating Altoids curiously strong mints to provide tins for the prototypes (happily with absolutely no laxative effects), fiddling with obscure electronic components and having a brilliant time doing it. I love that these kits provide a way for beginners like myself to enjoy electronics and it makes them brilliant for use as Christmas presents!"
|Linda Sambell - Project manager
"More familiar with the combined properties of heat, eggs, butter, sugar and self-raising flour, electronics has remained somewhat a mystery to me until I was presented with a minty geek 101 kit. The joys of creating a circuit with a flashing led almost surpassed the thrill of the first taste of a light-as-air Victoria sandwich. Needless to say I was hooked, especially after extending the egg-timer circuit to give me the correct timing for the perfect sponge cake!"
