The Educolo game (“Learning while having fun” is the concept, the game board resembles that of a game of goose, and the game cards ask questions in the form of a quiz, The questions are based on the general curriculum of the high school) was designed and will be manufactured and marketed by the class of the first year of the LYCEE PROFESSIONNEL J ET E MONTGOLFIER in Annonay (07), as part of a mini-company set up with the support of the Entreprendre pour Apprendre federation. This mini-company took place during the past school year, and the fruit of the young people’s work will be put on sale in September.

EKIUM is a sponsor of the game, and its HR director Pierre Colombel is one of the two mentors who accompanied the project. The profits of the operation will be used to finance a school trip and to contribute to the work of a charity. The real challenge is of course to immerse the young people in the professional world and its problems, to make them work as a team, to make them aware of their potential, to give them confidence and to develop an entrepreneurial spirit.
