Check out the SpinWheel – a programming teaching tool, launching on Kickstarter!

Gentner Lab student Jenna Ditto and a team of engineering and physics PhD students are developing the SpinWheel: a colorful, wearable kit to teach and learn physics and computer science in a fun, tangible way! The SpinWheel can be sported as a keychain or jewelry, and comes with a set of activities that you can follow along with to program the device into a step counter, a compass, a colorful display of LEDs, and more. The team is launching their kit on Kickstarter on Monday March 16. Visit their Kickstarter page to support them on March 16, or their website for more information about the project! All proceeds go towards funding Yale Society of Women Engineers STEM outreach events for students in Connecticut.
