Foggy City

A technogical board game about air quality for kids

Living Lab Scheveningen has challenged us with building a workshop kit for children that educates them on the topic of air quality. We came up with the Foggy City; a fun, technological board game, that is intended for kids aged 8 to 12 years old. On the board rests a misty layer created by a fog machine. Multiple fans are spread around the board, which will turn on if good pawns, like trees and windmills, are added to the board. The goal of the game is to make a fog-free and therefore a clean city. With this board game we hope to make the users aware of air quality and its effects, and to encourage them to have a meaningful impact on their future.
