"Pathfinders Design and Technology designs and manufactures wooden science kits for educational and recreational use. They are located  on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Derek Wulff, who started the pathfinders kit is a teacher and environmentalist. They spend time with kids in schools, making and using the kits to see how well they deliver curriculum for teachers, and to make sure they are engaging and appropriate for both fun play and educational aspects.

Pathfinders is dedicated to creating compelling, innovative, wooden science kits that challenge children of all ages to explore the link between science, design, and technology in the world around us. We aim to help the student integrate knowledge gained from constructing the kits by providing links to educational resources to enhance their understanding of math and science as well as historical principles.

Pathfinders aims to provide such fun and interesting kits that they will be an attractive and desirable toy for anyone from a small child to an executive planning a friendly take over.

Pathfinders is an environmentally friendly company and use recyclable materials, natural, untreated wood, and local resources and production as much as possible. All of the kits are tested to make sure they are 100% safe, so if the dog (or a child) eats the glue then s/he will not be exposed to any unsafe levels of chemicals of any kind. Same with the other parts like that (like the clay projectiles).

The kits are manufactured in China but Derek visits the company regularly to ensure the workers and conditions are good and fair.
