Due to the dramatic sanitary situation, The Fenix School has decided to promote Project-Based-Learning (PBL) in order to keep pupils intellectually stimulated, interested and engaged in their learning but also to make sure that they are doing all these in a safe environment. 

Of course, this means reinventing the way we design our lessons so that the content matches the needs of our modern learners AND the current situation we are facing as parents and teachers.

This is how we came up with our first creative and educational kit "Une idée de génie", a DIY Board Game 100% Made in Fenix and inspired by the short story written by Olivier Dupin. In this story, a monkey arrives in a village with a genius idea in mind...he challenges the animals of the forest who are thrilled to take the challenge. But before reaching the monkey, they will have to follow a trail...This is where our game starts!
