AWARDS

Second prize in DEVICE Design Award 2014 in the student category for CamQuest
2014

“The design presents a good pedagogical application for children, based on an interesting concept of learning about geometry. The method is clearly described with a high degree of participation of children in the iterative design process. In this way the project contributes to development of apps that are specifically tailored to fit into a preschool context.”

Design for Vulnerable Generations – Children and Elderly (DEVICE) is an EU funded project, which aims to bridge traditional industrial design programs with ergonomics, usability concepts and user experience approaches with a specific focus on vulnerable generations.
