Bubble Safari/Bubble DiveThe object of bubble safari is to get the intrepid foil man to fly on the bubble as far as possible, in a house, or around a set of obstacles, by blown and making air currents with the hands and the body. Where he falls marks the spot of his journey's end. Videos here and here.

ICEPACK/Penguin GameA tile game for two players with a 'climate change edge' . It develops a good understanding of symmetry and pattern, is very tactile is easy to play, though complex to master. It requires the development of strategies of defense and attack that bring surprisingly close endings to most games. Who can best adapt their tactics and establish the larger colony of penguins on the ice flow? See a video here.
