The event is promoted by the H2020 BEACONING project. BEACONING’s concept is to digitally enable play-learn in everyday spaces fostering cross-subject learning, facilitated by personalised gamified lesson plans where context-aware educational resources and ad-hoc learning in the surrounding environment can be triggered. BEACONING pragmatically addresses the needs of disabled learners, who are engaging with general education.

The event takes advantage of the geolocation technologies developed in the project to create a playful urban experience in which young citizens from all over the European continent participate in a collaborative location-based game on the same day and at the same time while discovering their city and learning STEM skills.
