Abstract

The emerging Internet of Things (IoT), through which vast amounts of everyday objects are becoming embedded with computing and networking capabilities, is rapidly changing the way society uses and experiences technology. Despite this, children do not systematically learn about IoT in schools. This demonstration will showcase ConnectUs, a new IoT toolkit, which can be used to introduce children to a variety of IoT concepts, and provide users with the opportunity to design their own IoT system.
