This studio will introduce students to fundamentals of interactive toy design and introduce basic design techniques and principles. Students will build several toy prototypes in this class. We will review of related theory from the fields of design, fine art, education and cognitive science, and focus on fast ideation and implementation of ideas. Some readings related to design and learning will be required, but the majority of the course will be spend doing hands-on building. To get in three full weeks, we will start the first day of IAP, so those planning to take the IAP class should be able to be on campus for all of IAP.
