Motivated by the great impact of our game Arcopolis, we designed and produced another game: Arcards, our own “Top Trumps Card Game” about important scientific figures and their characteristics. The cards also include biographies of the scientists and have been very useful in informing children through a little bit of competition and a lot of fun during the Anatolian Maker Movement projects.
Arcopolis is the first game we have designed and produced. This board game’s purpose is to teach children about engineering through fun facts, pictures, and terminology. The game involves questions about inventions, engineering and science in order to influence and motivate children through a fun challenge. We integrated Arcopolis to our 4-year-old Anatolian Maker Movement project, making it even more fun and effective, using it to inspire little children in rural areas.
