PoughkeepsieGO

波啟浦夕GO

The urban design premise of PoughkeepsieGo is based on fun as a pedagogical concept. By speaking the language of children through gaming to engage and educate about what’s on their plate, we hope to start a food cultural revolution against current junk food habits. The proposal appropriates the vernacular of play in order to instill a critical consciousness of all food-related processes.

PoughkeepsieGO_Gaming Curriculum
 

The gamescape is structured around bringing different schools within Poughkeepsie City School District together; by sharing a common learning experience and a centralized kitchen. It is a strategy of localization in order to make efficient economies of food production and consumption. As children move through the K-12 public school system, they study the entire food cycle and participate in the processes within.  

3,000 School districts qualified for Community Eligibility Provision are encouraged to adapt PoughkeepsieGO's urban gaming strategy into their lunch education curriculum. Starts in Hudson Valley as an initiative, the pedagogical concept of PoughkeepsieGO aims to reshape food culture in United States by inviting 8.5 million students from CEP schools to take roles in the entire food production cycle through competitive gaming.
