The AAWSA Visitors Center gives the opportunity for students to play 2 different games with their friends. Those games were developed under the S2T&B project and are tailored to the local needs and challenges. One game is called “4’s” and the other, the “Fly over game”. Both games help visitors understand how to improve their hygiene and that of others, and what they need to do to keep their water and food clean. AAWSA visitor center staff, visitor’s guide or their teachers can explain to them how to play the games.

Below you can see some pictures of visitors playing the games (left side: 4’s, right side: Fly over game)

You can find more information about the 4’s game and its rules here.
