Houses + Homes
Over the summer of 2020, I worked as an industrial design intern at a Brooklyn-based startup called Teknikio. The company focuses on STEM education and produces a range of physical and digital learning materials such as toys, apps, and lesson plans that educate on topics related to hardware and programming. My concluding project for this internship was the Houses & Homes kit.

The Houses & Homes kit is a set of toy blocks designed to support Bluebird, a circuit board that specializes in IoT learning and functionalities. The architectural theme is intended to educate on global cultures through 18 modular blocks which can be assembled into various dwellings. The kit features 4 preset block configurations and 8 code programs to serve as a starting point for users to explore custom configurations.
