Teknikio is a toy company that brings fun and play into learning STEM with invention kits.

As a part-time Product Designer on the team, I built, designed, made instructions and promotional content for original games and interactive inventions and crafts. I used Teknikio's toolkits and microcontroller, BlueBird, to do this.

For each project, I coded either in Arduino or using the Tekniverse coding blocks to have the inventions be interactable

Process For Each Project

1) Brainstorm craft/toy ideas with sketches and small prototypes
 
2) Communicate with Founder of Teknikio on product ideas 
 
3) Create the physical product using Teknikio's invention kits / hardware (BlueBird) and other materials such as fabrics and colorful papers


4) Create code for the interactive product using Arduino / C++ or Teknikio's code blocks


5) Create illustrations and step by step instructions on how to recreate the final product to publish on Teknikio website (Tekniverse)


6) Create promotional content for the inventions
