about

A product needed to be developed to teach K-2nd graders elementary sequencing to build a foundation for programming. I built a game that did that.

In partnership with Tufts Child Development majors, several mechanical engineers and I worked on producing a product aimed at teaching basic programming skills to children ages 6-10. To guarantee a successful product, we collaborated heavily with our target audience, developing prototypes, obtaining feedback from children, and iterating through further versions.

For final deliverables, a "final product" was created in conjunction with a Kickstarter-esque product pitch video (see above!). We additionally compiled a presentation to pitch our products to the class.

This project was completed using the LabVIEW programming environment, LEGO Mindstorms EV3, and various rapid prototyping technologies including laser cutting and FDM printing.
