Session: Learning about technology through play.
I'm passionate about new technologies. I believe that - through play - children can build a fundamental understanding of technology and develop skills that will benefit them later on in their life. I will talk about how learning through play is beneficial and see creative ways of applying it.
I am a senior Industrial designer at the LEGO group. I work in the department Product and Technology where I am Design lead in technological projects. I work together with LEGO retail and LEGO Education to develop LEGO technology elements. My team is made of talented Designers, Mechanical, Hardware and Software engineers.
As a Design Lead I am responsible for the physical design of the LEGO Technology elements. I work closely with multiple stakeholders to ensure that product, user and portfolio needs are translated into a feasible LEGO design that integrates a broad array of aspects, such as: product roadmaps, usability, modularity, engineering, visual expression etc..
