With the fall semester just around the corner and most schools back in session this month, we thought we'd do a roundup of our favorite must-have tech items for the back-to-school season. Enjoy!

Osmo CodingDesigned to be played with an iPad, this set helps to teach children develop logic and problem-solving skills, as well as basic coding concepts. After attaching the iPad to a base with a mirror unit, kids can put the magnetically-linking tiles together to control the character as they navigate the game. 

Hex Brigade Origin Backpack: Treated to be water resistant, this sleek bag has a separate padded compartment for a laptop (fits up to 15" model), and leather detailing. A sturdy and stylish bag, this is a great find for a student who tends to put their backpack through the ringer each semester.  3Doodler 3D Printing Pen: Hailed as the first 3D printing pen, this little gadget is seriously cool. Working on a similar principle as a hot glue gun, you plug it in, give it a minute to warm up, then feed a strand of plastic in your desired color into it, and doodle away. There are two different types of plastic available, depending on whether you want to create 3D structures, or doodle on glass. 

Cogi: This app is a must-have for any college student lacking in note-taking skills, or simply finds themselves struggling to remember what was said in lectures. Offering 500 MB of Cloud storage for the free option, Cogi also has upgrades available for purchase, like 24-hour transcription and call recording. Great for first-year college students.
