Introduction:

Out Of The Box Education, an EdTech startup founded out of MIT, is on a mission to create meaningful learning experiences for children around the world. The aim of the project was to develop a modular children’s 'classroom-in-a-box' furniture that transforms any available space into a learning environment through different sets of learning activities.

The project involved the full product development process - from idea to manufacturable product. The goal was to define a product that was ergonomically considered, modular and flexible in the ways it could be used. The outcome was a product that exceeded its Kickstarter funding goals within 5 minutes of launch. The design managed to reduce inventory, enhance usability and increase durability of the unit leading to an overall better product.
