Climate Change – the board game at INQUA 2023

Yesterday I had the pleasure of presenting Climate Change – the Board Game at the Congress of the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA 2023) in Rome. It was during session 10, Visualizing Science – The art of communicating science.

At this link, you can find the abstract and more information about the session. And if you are interested in reading the poster, you can find it here on ResearchGate.

Climate Change activity with schoolchildren at the Zoology Museum

Yesterday I had another opportunity to do outreach about climate change with two groups of Year 8 students (12-13 years old), at the Museum of Zoology, University of Cambridge.

As usual, the session started with a short talk explaining the relationship between climate change, evolution and extinction. After that, the students had explored these tipics by playing “Climate change” my board game.

Learning how climate changes impact animal species gives a better understanding of the actual threats linked to the current climate emergency. Understanding such processes through a game makes the students’ experience more engaging and less stressful than it would be when following a lecture or a talk.

Board Games night at the Museum of Zoology

This year I will be involved in the Cambridge Festival for this exciting event:

Board games at the Museum of Zoology (grown-ups only!)
Wednesday 22nd March 2023
18:30-21:30
Downing Street, Cambridge.

It will be an after-hours visit to the Museum of Zoology for animal-themed board games. Grab a drink, play strategy games with Heffers Games, create canine chaos, battle to be the best at Hungry Hungry Hippos or explore new habitats every time the climate change.

I will present Climate Change, the board game inspired by my work in the Department of Zoology, leading a demo game and helping people through playing.

Join us by buying a ticket here!

Climate Change activity with schoolchildren at the Zoology Museum

Yesterday I hosted a session about climate change with Year 10 students (14-15 years old), at the Museum of Zoology, University of Cambridge.

I gave a short talk explaining the relationship between climate change, evolution and extinction, and then the students played with “Climate change“, the board game that I created based on my research.

Learning how climate changes impact animal species gives a better understanding of the actual threats linked to the current climate emergency. Understanding such processes through a game makes the students’ experience more engaging and less stressful than it would be when following a lecture or a talk.

In the next couple of weeks, I will be hosting three sessions about climate change with Year 10 students (14-15 years old), at the Museum of Zoology, University of Cambridge.

I will be giving a short talk explaining the relationship between climate change, evolution and extinction and then we will play the board game that I have created based on my research.
