A few weeks ago we ran the first edition of the Oakwood Creatures, the premiere activity in our Research & Development program (of which, but the way, a lot of cool stuff are coming out soon, so keep posted). It was a hands-on full-day workshop that celebrated technology as a major tool for creative expression.
The workshop came out of a desire to get more people curious about technology and over the barrier that electronics and programming are things only nerds can do. I used insights from the prototyping courses we have held at Berghs and Hyper Island, and my experiences from Kids Hack Day (a project that Oakwood supports) to create an activity that involved design, storytelling and logical thinking.
