Adventurous learning, living heritage

Aim of this project to create a strong involvement with the subject among pupils. The approach can best be described as 'adventurous learning'. Pupils are dragged into the story and are gathering information in a playful manner, both in the virtual world and in real life.

It all starts with a secret adventure to discover a mysterious object and a hunt for information. All pieces of information are collected on a website. A secure part of the website is accessible for teachers to give online support.
