Inventions That Make a Difference: Learning Landscape

Invention doesn't just mean objects. It might mean interactive landscapes as described in Design Revolution: 1001 Products That Empower People by Emily Pilloton.

Project H Design came up with a Learning Landscape for teaching math. They installed one at an orphanage in Uganda and it's designed to be sturdy, fun, and educational. They designed 10 math based games to be played within a square grid with tires placed on end and buried half way up in the ground.

The games are designed to teach all the basic math concepts as well as spatial and logical reasoning.

Learn more about it and how to get one here.
