Abstract: Programmable devices have become very popular in schools, for robotics, environmental sensing, and even interactive art. However, in developing countries, their penetration has been limited due either to unavailability or high cost. In this paper, we discuss recent work on an open-source, low-cost platform mainly designed for developing countries. We discuss its design principles, based on extensive fieldwork, as well as the learning implications, use of low-cost materials, and local construction of boards. © ISLS.
