For more info on how we got here, read The Background!

As we noted in our previous post, with the Story Sash Project, we want to give children a way to see themselves as the protagonists of different narratives, and tie those narratives to engaging, fun STEM-focused activities.  In doing this, we hope to help empower, educate, and ignite children of all backgrounds, and get them actively engaging with their environment in fun, budget-friendly ways.

The Background

Standard

Welcome to the Story Sash Project’s blog!  The Story Sash is a collaboration between students in the UW’s Human Computer Interaction + Design (MHCID) Program and Human-Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) Program.  Under the guidance of professors Andrew Davidson and Daniela Rosner, we’re working on an interactive story sash for children that intertwines narrative with fun STEM activities!

We were first inspired to start this project after coming across an illustration that illuminates a very important representation problem in children’s books.
