Makerspaces can support educational experiences in prototyping for children. Storytelling platforms enable high levels of creativity and expression, but have high barriers of entry. We introduce StoryMakAR, which combines making and storytelling. StoryMakAR is a new AR-IoT system for children that uses block programming, physical prototyping, and event-based storytelling to bring stories to life. We reduce the barriers to entry for youth (Age=14-18) by designing an accessible, plug-and-play system through merging both electro-mechanical devices and virtual characters to create stories. We...

GERI 2018 Summer Workshops

    STAR I Workshop Over the summer of 2018, the C Design Lab conducted a two-week Toy Design workshop for students in grades 7 and 8. The Toy Design Summer Workshop is a combination of lecture-based and project-based classroom exercises. The students work in groups to complete certain engineering challenges, but also work individually for a more personalized learning experience.  In the first week of this toy design workshop, we...
