Skandaløs Festival Calling
20|08|2022 – This year there was a very special invitation from the very North: the Skandaløs Festival – which actually was organised in 2019 as a last edition – was revived and started in a new version with this year’s motto “gamification”. The beautiful festival in North Friesland at the border to Denmark came up with great musical acts, workshops, awareness offers, morning yoga sessions and a lovingly designed backdrop directly at the natural bathing lake Hülltofter Tief. With the our arctic demo we became part of the gaming tent that was there for the first time this year. Next to retro consoles and gaming machines, everybody was ablet to take a short trip to the Arctic. A wonderful time at one of the finest festivals in the country. We’d love to come back :)!

We also made it into the Tagesschau briefly, as can be seen here:
Leipziger Modellschule as test school
31|03|2022 – The Leipziger Modellschule is the first school in which the Heartucate format is tested with children. On 30.03., 19 children were sent to the Arctic in five teams of four to help a researcher. The focus was not only on joy and shared experience, but also on important insights for the development team. In a subsequent evaluation, the children’s impressions were collected and documented. Thank you very much for the great welcome!
Final sprint for our Crowdsourcing
06|01|2022 – We are now in the final days for our crowdsourcing, which we are carrying out together with the Crowd Innovation team of the Fraunhofer Institute on the platform for cluster feedback. On the platform we collect ideas from the crowd and the network on the topics of #school, #application contexts, #rewards, #crowd, #funding and #bets. In the meantime, we have received 38 fantastic ideas from the crowd. All participants will receive an invitation to an interactive test event on January 28th, during which our current demo version can be tested and evaluated.
