Event description

Description

Children from 8 until 12 years old!

What do you like to play with on a sunny or rainy day? Do you think video games are cool or do you prefer to play football outside? When it comes to play, all options are valid, but what if you can mix them?

In this workshop you will get to play with some toys and create new ones using the Nintendo Switch, Makey Makey and LittleBits. You are the experts of Play and we will like to hear your opinion about your needs and interests. More importantly, you can build toys and develop your own games. At the end we will show the results of this session in an interactive presentation where everybody is invited to play!

Grown-ups can also join here https://www.eventbrite.com/e/digital-physical-play-tickets-51401257545

TRAINERS

Jake Henderson (Instrument Developer at DSS)

Felipe Escobar (Instrument Designer at DSS)

Tamara Pinos C. (PhD Candidate & Instrument Developer at DSS): With a background in computer engineering, research, making and coaching I like to explore the possibilities of using mixed mediums and prototyping creative solutions. I am currently working on my research on the use of Smart-Toys to motivate children to exercise their fine motor skills. This is a collaboration between the DSS, the Digital Life Centre and the Play & Civic Media lectorates in the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and the Design Lab in the University of Twente.

Anneke van Woerden (Impact Producer at DSS): At DSS I am working on integrating the UN sustainable development goals into everything we do, for example through events, workshops and methods. I am interested in everything at the intersection of design, social innovation and sustainability.
