FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Helsinki, February 2nd 2017
Finnish creative and ridiculous EdTech startup, LUPO World™, has been selected from among over 110 applicants for the xEdu Spring 2017 program! LUPO World envisages empowering teachers as heroes of their classroom with hands-on, easy to use and creative tools to transform their classroom into a playground of 21st century learning and teaching. LUPO World’s first product – LUPO: The Space Adventure – is a collaborative and creative storytelling card game that turns the classroom into a ridiculous sci-fi adventure. Planet Earth turns into a raisin and students / players have to form a space crew and find a new home for humanity. It is up to the teacher and students to decide how they want to bring their ideas to life, be it pen & paper or building an actual spaceship, the only limit is their imagination.
“LUPO: THE SPACE ADVENTURE HAS A LOT OF PEDAGOGICAL VALUE AS YOU CAN MAKE
CONNECTIONS TO ANY SUBJECT WITH THIS GAME.” – Tomi Tolonen
LUPO: The Space Adventure engages students in creative problem solving, team work and empathy and has been co-created with teachers and students. LUPO: The Space Adventure also helps teachers to combine multiple subjects / topics and technologies (e.g. 3D printing, Minecraft) with an engaging and ridiculous space adventure.
