Course: ME310 Design Engineering

How might we help 5th grade Chinese students learn better together collaboratively?


Teamo is a collaborative learning companion robot that promotes team collaboration among 5th and 6th grade students. By tracking individual student contribution during group activities, Teamo is able to personalize its questions and interactions in the way that best promotes collaboration.

What did I do?

I worked with two mechanical engineering Master's students and one Education PhD student for 6 months to develop an innovative solution for the future of education. As the designer, I focused on needfinding, visualizing the design system, prototyping solutions, and conducting design experiments to test our ideas.

The project is sponsored by NetDragon, a Chinese education technology company. We also had the opportunity to travel to China to work on the project with NetDragon product designers and our partner academic team from Beijing Normal University.
