Students can also create tangible products at the end of their reading sessions to actualize their imagination of the storyline.

Solution innovativeness

Reinventing and combining existing applications. There are already existing technologies such as reading apps and 3D printers available, but our idea is to encourage kids to build reading habits from the very core, through fun activities. 

Solution transferability

It could be done anywhere in the classroom, with a set of prescribed instructions. 

Solution sustainability

Collaboration with schools is necessary, but the materials can be reused every year. 

Solution team work

We are all pedagoical majors so we shared a lot of our experiences in classroom teaching, and worked really well in putting the slides and presentations together in a timely manner.
