Race To Zero
Working with Fife Council we were able to create an interactive simulation app! The app is named ‘Race to Zero’ and focuses on economy, energy and social management, with the aim to help boost enterprise learning of Fifes young students aged 12-16. The game requires students to make a sequence of decisions that effect the towns Zero Carbon energy use, population and economic state. Each session lasts approximately 40 minutes to fit in with lesson time.
Councillor Altany Craik, Convenor – Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning and Transportation Committee, welcomed the news. He said:
“This is an exciting step forward in engaging high school pupils in enterprising activities. By combining the latest technology with an environmentally responsible approach to business, Fife’s young people will be challenged on a range of issues. Without question, this will develop key skills, whilst providing our young people with the confidence to succeed.
“For Fife Council Economic Development’s Culture of Enterprise Programme to have financial support from Interreg RIGHT Project to enable the development of such an innovative game, will benefit high school users enormously, and help to prepare them for the world of work.”
