On this rainy Friday afternoon as I was flicking through the magazine put out by WasteMINZ my day was suddenly made just a wee bit brighter.
Amid all the doom and gloom of the world is wasting x product at ridiculous levels I came across a small feature article on something a little bit cool, a little bit different and that most definitely brightened my day: Educational computer games.
I did a little bit of research and the game that I played (briefly of course!) was called ” Michael, Michael, Go Recycle! .” Highly addictive, in this game (designed, I’ll admit, for kids) you run around picking up various types of rubbish and then deposit them into various recycling and rubbish bins. You get points for the more you recycle and you have to think about what you have collected and what bin it should go into.
So if are you sitting at home playing with a kid and you want to teach them about recycling or if you are at work and want just a little bit of entertainment to fill in your Friday, check it out at http://funschool.kaboose.com/globe-rider.earth-day!
