- GeoGenius Visualisation Kit history
GeoGenius’ history began in 2004 with teacher and educationalist Aarnout Brombacher. Aarnout has accumulated extensive expertise on how geometry stimulates a child’s development. Aarnout developed the GeoGenius Visualisation Kit because he believes that visualisation processes are crucial to the development of geometrical understanding. A GeoGenuis Visualisation Kit is not only educational but it’s also a joy to play with. The kit allows children the opportunity to work together to construct a 3-D arrangement of blocks from a 2-D viewing card, where each player only has information about one view of the arrangement.
