Games Connect began in 2012 whilst home schooling in beautiful Mission Beach Queensland, sparked by a life long passion for nature and protecting the environment, inspired by creativity and bringing fun into education. With over 25 years of experience working in schools, from prep to year 12. This gave me first hand insights for the need to make learning fun and engaging, to encourage and inspire students to become a voice for the future of our planet.
Living with regular visits from cassowaries and the reality of their shrinking environment l felt a call to action to honour these amazing creatures as they are not seen to be cute and cuddly, to the contrary they are quite intimidating looking and need a lot of help and understanding if they are to survive.
The "Cassowary game" was the beginning of Games Connect and over the next few years with the help of a RADF grant, (Regional Arts Development Fund) expanded into the 6 games currently available today.
Games Connect loves exploring new ways to share the joy of learning about nature and is committed to creating sustainable products that are affordable, locally produced, compact and light weight for posting or putting in your handbag to play on the road.
These beautiful board games are a great way of reaching the hearts of children, imparting valuable information about our vulnerable unique wildlife, drawing parallels with children's need to feel safe and protected.
May we all support and nurture nature in the way she supports us.
Play and Learn - Share and Care.
THESE BOARD GAMES ARE A SHARED LEARNING EXPERIENCE, FACE TO FACE.
