An MIT Media Lab startup is creating beautiful wooden toys to teach children the basics of coding
Kimberly Smith was a master's student in the MIT Media Lab's social computing group when she first began dreaming up wooden toys to teach children how to code. At the time, the lab was looking into small-scale solutions in education, agriculture, and transportation "that would make cities stronger and better and more livable," says Smith. "These were things like small-scale parklets or micro permaculture farms." The idea was to “use the small scale model to affect big change."
