about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

In this digital age, children are over dependent on the use of digital devices. At BEEP Lab we believe that a holistic development of a child needs to be back to basics. Where proper analogue and digital tools needs to be properly introduced. To prevent our children from overly stimulated by video graphics. We want to use design thinking to empower them to be active participants of our world.

How does your innovation work in practice?
