SCENARIO

2050. Everyone was so busy planning for survival, they forgot the next step.

By the time 1000 people had settled on Mars, we had managed to solve problems like radiation and food, but had exhausted all our old Earth ideas just at a time when we should be ready to thrive - that’s where YOU come in. What is the first thing Mars needs next?

WHAT

  • LIVE-ACTION GAME SCENARIOS. CONTENT CUSTOMISED FOR EACH SCHOOL OR ORG
  • TEACHES SOFT + HARD SKILLS NEEDED IN FUTURE WHERE WORK IS TRANSFORMED
  • LINKS TO CURRICULUM FOR ARTS, ICT, DESIGN, TECHNOLOGIES
  • BLENDS ENTREPRENEUR, ROBOTICS, 3D PRINTING, VR, AR, MINECRAFT AND AGILE / DESIGN THINKING SKILLS

WHY?

  • Huge change across tech, work and society is creating an ‘Age of Transition’ and crisis
  • Only way to ensure todays learner thrive tomorrow is if they can make their own job
  • Leaders, Teachers and learners need a big-picture skills framework to show the way
  • FirstOnMars is the training simulation where skills from the Future-U Future Literacies can be learned
