Brain Bridges explores how toy design changes when children are considered partners in the design process.
Danielle Begnaud has partnered with KidsTeam at the University of Maryland's Human Computer Interaction Lab.
Over the last year, Danielle and her design partners used the cooperative inquiry method to take a project through traditional industrial phases like research, ideation, prototyping and testing.
Designed to spark imagination and creative play, Brain Bridges is a kit of generative shapes that allows kids to design anything out of the cardboard boxes that they already have at home.
