The course was developed by Wetenschapsknooppunt Erasmus University (Public Science) in collaboration with Jansz, also building upon PGIC research. About 140 pupils will spend 6 lessons on the nature of (digital) games and their effects. They will practice interviewing as a scientific method and develop their own game.
