Strawbies: Tangible Programming Project, headed by Felix Hu

Strawbies square

Tangible Tech Collaborative: Strawbies Tangible Programming Game isĀ an innovative project from inventor/programmer Felix Hu, with designers Ariel Zekelman and Eric Uchalik. Players (ages 5+) use handheld pieces with scannable TopCodes to program instructions for an on-screen character “Awbie.” Older players discover complexity, strategy, logic and looping within Hu’s programming features. Current iterations use an Osmo stand and reflector with iPad for digital/tangible interactions.
