mcSquares (pronounced m-c- squares, think  hammer, not McDonalds) is a modular system of mini white boards that when connected create one big white board. This allows students, colleagues and coworkers to work on their own contribution to the bigger picture. If students and teachers decide their part fits somewhere else each block can be moved around the magnetic board. Collaboration reaches new heights without actual technology.

Hannah from mcSquares walked our 9 year old Tatum through the mcSquares process even demonstrating how each square can be swapped out with another and turned in any direction.  Students in a classroom can take square back to their desk and work on their contribution to the entire class project. When they’re done, they just add their square where it goes and voila.

Each mcSquare comes with popular templates for things you would find on a white board. The inside of the square is magnetic and makes it easy to stash both the eraser and the dry erase markers.

Of course a system like mcSquares is perfect for the board room and for startups as well. Business people can work on their own contribution to a big project and then put the squares together to show how the whole project works. The possibilities with mcSquares are only limited to the users creativity, but with a bunch of users working in tandem, the possibilities become limitless.

mcSquares are available in a number of configurations, from a personalized office package to a class room, conference room or board room.
