As a RISD artist, Alex is fascinated with how we see, and as a designer, with how we optimize seeing as understanding. As a mother and inventor, Alex makes visual learning playable and concepts playful. na2ure’s platforms are the springboard for analog and digital games about nature and its STEM base, optimized via STEAM and visual pattern recognition.
Na2ure won NYC Design Awards Best Small Studio, its games Forbes and Dr. Toy 10 Best Game, and Best Digital, Scholastic Teachers’ Pick, and Alex was recognized by Eileen Fisher/Take Part Media, 30 Women Changing the World in 2014.
na2ure’s platforms – the Periodic Table for Biology and the Pattern Alphabet – comprise a revolution in play based on cognitive development. Alex seeks to harness preschoolers’ curiosity about nature, to have nature’s pattern building enhance their understanding of all STEAM subjects; nurturing lifelong learning and appreciation of our biodiversity go hand in hand.”
