"Can we please go to the NUITEQ office and play with Snowflake?"

When you have young kids, in the weekend with the whole family you go do fun things, like going to the park, shopping, ski-ing, snow scootering etc.

But my step kids Emelie and William asked me, instead of going to an entertainment park, if they could go the the NUITEQ office to play with Snowflake Suite, because they thought it was so much fun.

So off we went to the NUITEQ office to let them play around with Snowflake and we shot a bunch of pictures while we were at it.

Its great to see that not only adults use Snowflake for corporate presentations in their offices or at exhibitions, but that also kids love to use our software just for playing and playful education. In my opinion its an ideal tool to engage with people.

At the same time, letting kids work with the software, is a perfect opportunity to see what works and what doesn't work when it comes to interaction design, in order to make the software as natural and intuitive as possible.
