Education4.0 is a buzzword but current solutions are short-sighted as giving every kid a tablet and some boring eLearning system. The main problem with education for digital natives is to produce and service engaging, attractive and challenging content which lets them discover playfully and make them curious to solve complex problems. Learning is about grit and getting it done. Kids do this while playing computer games all the time and invest a lot of time. With our platform we combine XR, games and learning and put it together in a challenge they all know: an interactive escape room. Our system helps youth and educators alike and makes learning fun again.
