Rosie has been an Wyss Zurich Asscoiate project from March 2017 to February 2019.
Project Rosie is an Education Initiative. The team believes exceptional science education should be accessible to all. The mission is to deliver effective educational technology that sparks a lifelong passion for science.
The Rosie team develops educational technologies for ages 8 and up. Co-creation drives product innovation. Workshops are run in partnership with schools, universities and corporations. Children, parents and educators are involved throughout development. The workshops explore smartphone technologies, including sensors and augmented reality.
The first product was an educational app. It followed the story of Rosie the Robot. This discovery app transformed your smartphone into an accessible science lab. Children teached Rosie by doing smartphone science experiments in the real world.
This project was supported by the following partners: Gebert Rüf Stiftung, Autonomous Systems Lab ETH Zurich, Wyss Zurich and Venture Kick.
