TIG – Technology Inspiring Girls

By: Anne Arzberger

Tutors: Maria Luce Lupetti & Peter Kraaijeveld

Keywords: storytelling, toolkit, inspiration, kids, technology

TIG is a collaborative storytelling toolkit that invites young girls to explore the impact and the possibilities of technology in their everyday environment. It is designed to help the girls to overcome their insecurity and instead develop a lasting enthusiasm for technology. TIG thereby tries to increase the number of women in STEM professions in the long term.

My design goal is to inspire girls age 9-11 to lasting enthusiasm for technical exploration in their everyday environment, in order to increase the number of women in STEM professions.

The interaction should feel like being researchers exploring unknown terrain with curiosity and self-confidence. Relying on both, the team partner and tools, to get familiar with the new environment.
