We present Geometris, a collaborative embodied geometry game for 6- to 11-year-old children. As shapes are projected onto the floor, players recreate those shapes on a 6×6 foot interactive mat. At the end of each level, a geometric pattern – the result of overlaying all created shapes – is displayed. Two dimensions of user interaction – mobility and division of labor – emerged during pilot gameplay sessions. We hypothesize that these interactions offer resources for children to learn geometry concepts as well as collaboration skills.
