This version of the Bio…What? game is a location-based augmented reality game about the bioeconomy that brings to the mobile screen the raw materials it is possible to use to create products for everyday life. The game has been developed for children with the aim of raising awareness of the bioeconomy amongst the younger generation by stimulating their curiosity and delivering information and content about bio-based products.
The game has been used at the Bioeconomy Village, an exciting area for the general public designed to showcase the bioeconomy and organized by the BIOWAYS consortium. The area gave researchers and industry a platform to demonstrate and promote bio-based products and was part of the Maker Faire exhibition that took place in Rome from the 1st to the 3rd of December 2017. Visitors to this area who played the game were asked to find raw materials that were hidden in the Bioeconomy Village, being careful not to drop them, and then throw them into a relevant container to discover more about the world of the bioeconomy.
