EduTOYpia is:

  • a library for Computer Science toys, robots, games, and other tangibles to help educators find the right tool for their students.
  • a computer science toy testing area for future and current K-12 teachers in SMATE. 
  • a space where teachers can put their hands on the available toys to evaluate their usefulness in their classroom, either individually or in a workshop environment. 
  • a space where we can try out available technology with groups of students to learn about how well students interact with the technology.
