Our project consists of an interactive game made and thought for kids, in particular, we wanted to design something that could help children to integrate and cooperate with particular attention to children with down syndrome. We'd want to help children overstep differences and create union and harmony. The game is made on 4 steps displayed on an LCD; children interact to the game with some cards. The game is structured for two players and until both of them gave the correct answer the game doesn't proceed to the next step. In the end they are rewarded with a little nice song. Things taught into different steps are: animals, colors, first numbers and animal's habitat. Answers are being made by LCD display with icons and with a sound answer that invites to put in the dedicated place the correct card. Cards are divided into steps by a tactile texture. Kids through this game learn new information and are stimulated in touching, hearing and seeing, besides being spurred to collaboration.

We are five students of Product Design attenting at IED Milan our second year. This year we had to face the realization and programmation of a kid's game that could interact with them by Arduino. This is our proposal.
