Food Spinner is an entertaining board game centered around food waste. To test the effect of the game we have visited Bjergsnæs Boarding School in Viborg, Denmark. Food Spinner is still a prototype but we received positive and useful feedback from the pupils. Much of the communication among the pupils showed signs of learning and “aha experiences” in relation to food waste.
Some of the quotes were:
– “That’s a lot of food waste during christmas!”
– “You actually learn some stuff and it gets you thinking”
– “It’s funny to learn something that your “brainy” parents don’t know, so you can teach them something”
– “We play a little longer” … “Can we just play untill 7.30?” … “Just one more round”
