“Uchronia: What is it?”

FabLab Solidaire Les Petits Débrouillards   -  France

How to raise awareness of energy issues among children? Through play! That’s what unemployed young people at the FabLab thought up. A pedagogical Escape Game on energy challenges players locked in a room to solve puzzles to get out. It’s an original way of getting to grips, as a team, with the question of energy sources and their use in everyday life. Each puzzle is designed in the FabLab with programmable electronic equipment (arduino, raspberry), 3D printers, and traditional building materials.

In our Solidarity FabLabs, we offer free training to young people facing difficulties in their lives. They learn about digital production, team-work and maybe even lay the foundations of a future career. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It offers them the opportunity to work on a project from beginning to end and to showcase their skills and abilities. This year, the challenge involves using digital technologies to imagine sustainable development solutions which fit into our everyday lives.
