Terex is a modular learning tool that utilizes discovery to teach the user about sensors and basic controls. The outcome of the overall experience is to develop a learning curve that follows the user as they learn more about science and engineering. Users can customize the toy by replacing parts and sensors that allow the toy to transform. For example: The toy has four wheels and operates like a car, but when the wheels are removed and replaced with pontoons, the toy is then operated as a boat. Sensors enhance the experience by causing useful interactions that help the user learn about each sensor.
