The UW Reality Lab just announced that they are funding our work in augmented reality (AR) and STEM for elementary school learners. Our most recent project in this area, PrototypAR, was just accepted to IDC'19:Kang, S., Norooz, L., Bonsignore, E., Byrne, V., Clegg, T. L., Froehlich, J. E. (2019). PrototypAR: Prototyping and Simulating Complex Systems With Paper Craft and Augmented Reality Proceedings of IDC 2019. 14 pages. To Appear.
We are honored and excited that the Makeability Lab received two 'Best Paper Awards' at CHI'19, which are given to the top 2% of all submissions at the conference.Anchored Audio Sampling: A Seamless Method for Exploring Children’s Thoughts During Deployment Studies by Alexis Hiniker, Jon Froehlich, Mingrui Ray Zhang, Erin Beneteau Project Sidewalk: A Web-based Crowdsourcing Tool for Collecting Sidewalk Accessibility Data At Scale by Manaswi Saha, Michael Saugstad, Hanuma Teja Maddali, Aileen Zeng, Ryan Holland, Steven Bower, Aditya Dash, Sage Chen, Anthony Li, Kotaro Hara, Jon Froehlich

"Mary Gates Research Scholarships are competitive scholarships intended to enhance the educational experiences of undergraduate students at the University of Washington while they are engaged in research guided by faculty. We hope that with research scholarships, students may focus more attention and time, deeping their inquiry into a discipline or project..."Congrats Aileen on this well-deserved recognition!
Our paper on PrototypAR, an interactive tangible prototyping system that allows children to rapidly build, test, and iterate on their designs using augmented reality (AR) was accepted to the 2019 ACM Interaction Design and Children (IDC) conference. PrototypAR combines lo-fidelity prototyping to facilitate iterative design, real-time AR feedback to scaffold learning, and a virtual simulation environment to support personalized experiments.
This is a large, collaborative project led by UMD PhD student Seokbin Kang along with Leyla Norooz, Elizabeth Bonsignore, Virginia Byrne, and Tammy Clegg!
See you in Boise, Idaho in June!
