The Infinite Habitat Boardgame

A customizable board game created through the support of the University of Calgary's PURE program for classrooms and other youth spaces made to reflect the youth playing, spur discussions around space, science, society, or as creative prompt. The more opportunities students and youth of diverse non dominant identities have to engage in visions of the future and reflect on their identities in a non homogenized way paves the way for growth and reflection opportunities.
