August 30th, Claudia Libbi (University of Twente) publicly (online) presented and defended her master project “When Life Gives You Lemons". In this project, Claudia designed a prototype of a computer game to support autistic girls (10-16 years old) in thinking about and practicing daily-life social interactions with peers. Every step of its development was done in co-design with autistic girls, who could inform Claudia from first-hand experiences about their daily issues and dilemmas, feeding directly into the game. The prototype was well-received, both by the stakeholders, the autistic girls, and the audience present at the defense.
