Whiteboards have become a staple in many classrooms, especially in the context of STEM courses. However, when it comes to teaching complex topics, it can be difficult or impractical to provide accurate drawings and visualizations by hand, and in extreme cases may lead to misinterpretation of a particular topic. To fix this issue, the Whiteboard Drawing Device allows users to draw preset shapes to a whiteboard automatically, both quickly and accurately. Using either a smartphone application or a set of onboard controls, the device allows users to automatically draw straight lines, rectangles, triangles, sinusoidal waves, and circles on the whiteboard. The shape, size, and position of each of these shapes on the board are defined by the user, and the device can be retrofitted to a whiteboard of max size 4’ × 4’. With this, the Whiteboard Drawing Device offers a user-friendly, low-cost, and fun alternative to other more expensive products with similar functionality.
