FlavourGame

FlavourGame is a project in the intersections of arts, technology, communication and health. It is conceived by an interdisciplinary team, and intends to reach kids aged 10-12 years old for raising discussion and sense-making around the theme of nutrition (food choices).

It is a new serious game that invites real foods – with their flavours, aromas and textures – into play. This game will be conceived for an hybrid board game – combining a physical board and a tablet – through a user-centred-design approach, where kids are given voice and space for their own perspectives.
