Go Play!, an international non-profit that promotes the importance of play for children in the developing world, is sponsoring a design competition to promote innovate playground designs. The winning design will be built for a school for refugee children along the border of Thailand and Burma (Myanmar).
Education systems all over the world are trying to create learning environments for children that prepare them for a rapidly changing future. To learn to live in such a world, children need much more than basic knowledge. A playground is the place for children to form the building blocks of creative, critical and collaborative thinking: from the invention of games and solutions to complex problems, to negotiating rules and inventing new scenarios -- play is the soil for the planting of new ideas.
The goal of this project is to build the winning design. In fact, the winning design team will win a total of $1000USD towards travel costs to Thailand to direct the building of their design with the help of Go Play!'s project manager.
