Educational bear

Egon the educational bear was the final part of my third integration (third semester). Egon a stuffed bear that educates children about body parts in an interactive way. The interactive part of this project is accomplished by the use of different sensors that the user can interact with. Part of the project was that the solution/product had to revolve around senses. The sensors inside the stuffed bear make it so that the user can interact by touching it.

What technology?

The educational bear is an Arduino project. Normally this would be coded in Arduino (C language). But we had to use NodeJS, this was done with the use of the johnny-five library. BY using this library we can program the Arduino in JavaScript. A part of the materials I used are force sensitive resistors, this will pick up where you touch the stuffed bear. I also used an accelerometer for the position of the bear, so you can see if the bear is in a good position.

What’s the project about?

The educational bear is a stuffed bear that educates children about body parts in an interactive way. The bear works around the senses (hearing, touch, sight). This is done by quizzing children and letting them touch a certain body part on the stuffed bear. First you have to select the language you want the quiz to be in. Once you have chosen the language you can start playing the quiz and have fun while learning. This interactive bear will give children a fun experience and this way they will remember the information better, because it’s done in a memorable way.
