Project summary

Teachers in Primary School can make students play this game in their class. The workshop is divided in 4 parts: a video, a debate, a game and a debate. The video is made to help kids to understand what is bullying and to introduce the game. The two debates are reflection time for the class. The main part of our project is the game. It is an electronic board game where kids have to help the character Rohaan to get out of being bullied. The kids will have different puzzle pieces with different actions that Rohaan can do. While assembling the pieces, some created paths are going to be wrong and others good, depending on this, an LED will pop either red or green.
