Life on Planet Gaia. (Or you can create your own planet name)
You are a new life form, similar to humans but much smaller. Your old planet has died and you and your team have travelled to a brand new planet where it looks very much like earth before humans lived here.
Your planet is very fragile and you have to create a way to live on this planet, feed yourselves, keep warm, build homes, travel around, and make life comfortable without destroying the planet as this is your last chance of survival.
If you do things wrong the planet will get weaker and you only have 12 months of planet life left.
If you do things right the planet gets even stronger and makes life good for everyone.
You can create creatures or discover creatures and plants that are the same as on Earth.
Your planet has:
Trees of different kinds
Plants of different kinds
Creatures in the Sea and Land some which can be eaten and some that are poisonous
Hot and Cool places

Killer whales are searching the sea for fish to eat, but instead they are encountering plastic everywhere. Build a game that tackles the problem and helps the killer whales survive.
The ARMY - MOD
The game challenge you have been set are real-life scenarios that soldiers have faced over the last year.
So, what are we facing….well unfortunately late last night news came to the UK Government that there had been an earthquake at one of Britain’s Overseas Territories in a mountainous region 4000 miles away and there was a requirement for urgent humanitarian aid.
It was a major one, measuring a very dangerous 7.4 on the Richter Scale and there has been reports indicating that there is damage to most buildings, roads, bridges in the area, with some structures completely collapsing.
The British Army has been deployed to provide urgent relief. However, before any supplies can be delivered there are four major challenges that the troops will face when they get there:
Challenge 1: All bridges have been destroyed but they need to be able to get supplies across a river?
Challenge 2: All the vehicles are broken but they need to move essential supplies from one part of the country to another
Challenge 3: Unexploded devices have been swept onto the roads meaning vehicles can no longer travel safely along them
Challenge 4: They do not have a working radio in order to send a message to say they have made it to the country safely.
When responding to a crisis like this there will be a wide range of Army roles involved in the operation.
You are an Infantry Platoon Commander (with 30 soldiers) tasked with supporting the re-building of a school.
Design a game that brings together all the Armed Forces trades to ensure your Unit can reach the area safely in order to support the re-building of the school.
