The Diorama Project
Children of the 21st century grow up in a world full of information and technology. By combining familiar subjects, like languages and art, with new topics such as programming and electronics, children develop valuable skills and knowledge in a more fun and tangible way. The Diorama Project is a series of workshops to foster STEAM education in primary schools. Children team up to write, record and tinker a story. Programmable electronics let their diorama come alive. An open source platform helps teachers, workshop organisers and makers to make this project available to children worldwide.

While living in China, Sanne got fascinated by the world of electronics. For her graduation project, The Diorama Project, she combined motors, light and audio modules with the extraordinary imagination of children.
