BOSTON Grammar School has come out as winners in the annual competition for the Electronics in School Scheme (EISS).

The project started with the brief ‘to design a board game with an integrated dice’, and the pupils spent a day developing their idea at Lincoln City Priory Academy. The board game, called Globe Trotters, had players moving around the circular board answering questions on trivia related to the five continents.

Correct answers were rewarded with 3D pieces of their building, for example Big Ben. The aim of the game was to be the first to complete their structure. The group integrated the dice into a central cube designed to look like a skyscraper with 2 dice, one deciding how far you moved, the other working as a timer to answer the questions.

Judges were impressed with the professionalism of the product and group.
