FLASHBACK TO 2006: “The Design with Nature Game Show is a way of having some fun at the start of the Water Balance Model training workshop. It loosens the group up. It gets them thinking about how to use the tool,” explained Richard Boase
The Design with Nature Game Show was one of the features of the training workshop hosted by UBC-Okanagan University.“It is fascinating to see how excited and ‘into it’ people get after a few minutes. The irony is that the grand prize is one hour of personal tutoring by me by phone. Just imagine what they would be like if there was a real prize! It just goes to show how important it is to make a computer modeling workshop fun. If people have fun, they will get more out of the day and perhaps some of the philosophical stuff will actually stick,” stated Richard Boase.
