About Us

from physicists to toy designers

Alana Aamodt


Idea generating powerhouse on a mission to play creatively as possible. 

While studying physics and design in university, we realized that the world of engineering, tech, and science has a diversity problem. 

Creativity, collaboration, and curiosity--all critical design skills also associated with improved diversity in STEM--are undervalued in our schools and offices. So many of us (organizations and individuals) have a fear of failure that stunts the growth of truly innovative ideas by stopping creative risk before it happens. 

The best way for people of all ages to become confident with these skills is to do them in a low-stakes context.


Play is a great place to start when it comes to changing our attitudes at the individual and organizational level. We want to use play to instigate a culture change that embraces playful failure and curiosity as critical ways to change the world.
