Project details

This is my MFA Industrial Design Thesis project. Nucleus is a platform that brings together passionate designers and dedicated teachers to create a more interactive, hands-on approach to learning.
Inspired by how quickly I learned to make projects with the Arduino platform, I set out to create a platform that would do the same for formal education.

Project outcomes

After reaching out to several educational institutions in Savannah to partner with, I decided to build Nucleus in collaboration with Charles Ellis Montessori School. During my collaboration With the School, I was able to develop two projects with the teachers and students: The Golden Ratio learning kit and Intro to Makey Makey.
