“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.
