Tell us about your team.

We’re an interdisciplinary team made up of electrical engineering, computer science, and political science students. We are dedicated to working with teachers in order to create a great product that will expose middle school students to computer science through a physical medium.

What are you looking forward to most as a team this year?

We’re looking forward to continuing our project and creating a prototype that can actually be used in classrooms!

What is a challenge you expect to overcome this semester?

We expect to face challenges in merging our curriculum with what is already in place. Additionally, we expect to face challenges in validating our idea that this is a problem that needs to be solved.
