Abstract

Our team created a role-playing curriculum based on the world’s largest fogwater harvesting project, pioneered by Dar Si Hmad, a Moroccan NGO. We created processes to gamify a course that integrates STEM and humanities content within the social, scientific and engineering context of the fog project. We developed characters, team activities and assignments to help students better understand social and cultural factors embedded in engineering problems. We also developed material for the NGO to use at the COP22 climate conference.
