    Objective: Exposure to technology can be a great thing for children. Mind Into Matter will show kids how they can use technology to unleash their creativity and bring their imaginations to life.
     
    Target: Children 5-13 years old and their parents
     
    Strategy: “Technology will not live up to its potential until we start to think of it less like televisions and more like paintbrushes.” - Mitchel Resnick, MIT Media Laboratory
     
    Insight: Technology as an educational tool is very effective. When appropriately used, these advantages have great potential to shape the creative minds of today's youth.
     
    Solution: Mind Into Matter will partner the creativity of Crayola and the innovation of HP to show how technology can be used as a tool of self-expression and imagination. Through 3D printing technology, the kiosks will give children the ability to actually turn their mind into matter.
