What if we could create an army of Einsteins, Franklins and Hawkinses by letting our children play board games at school?

It is hard to motivate school children to be interested in science − despite the fact that society will need many more engineers and scientists in the future. Therefore, game designer Ingeborg Munk Toft has created a generic board game concept targeting grades 7 to 9, where students play engaging scenarios about space travel, climate change and human survival. The game is also a tool for teachers who want to engage in motivational teaching without exceeding their preparation time.

Det er svært at motivere folkeskoleelever til at interessere sig for naturfagene – til trods for, at samfundet i fremtiden vil få brug for langt flere ingeniører og forskere. Derfor har spildesigner Ingeborg Munk Toft skabt et generisk brætspilkoncept målrettet udskolingen, hvor elever udspiller engagerende scenarier om rumrejser, klimaforandringer og menneskets overlevelse. Spillet er også et redskab for lærere, der ønsker at lave motiverende undervisning uden at overskride deres forberedelsestid.
