This week, FemTech.dk organised a two-day workshop with 26 students from eight different high schools in Copenhagen. During the workshop, each of the students created a “Cryptosphere”, which is an interactive device designed to make digital interaction effortful. The purpose is to make and preserve the importance of personal interaction in a time where it has never been easier to interact digitally. While creating their Cryptosphere, the students worked with microcontrollers, LED strips and motion sensors and reflected on the design of interactive devices. And all of them brought their Cryptospheres, microcontrollers, and sensors home!
We have made a video based on our GRACE demo at ACM GROUP’18– exploring experiences, challenges, and opportunities for participation in Computer Science. Enjoy!
We are just back from presenting GRACE at GROUP 2018 in Sanibel Island (Florida)! GROUP is a premier venue for research on work in social science, computer science, engineering, and design. This year GRACE was accepted as an interactive installation at the conference. The accompanying paper is included in the conference proceedings, check our paper at the ACM Digital Library. At the conference, the participants created origami bugs where they wrote their opinions on opportunities and challenges for facilitating inclusion in computer science. Then, they interacted with GRACE using their mobile phones and discussing with other participants. Stay tuned for an upcoming video showing participants’ opinions!
