Play is a
process that provides:
- Anticipation - expectation, wonder,
curiosity, anxiety, uncertainty, risk.
- Surprise - a-ha moments, discovery, a new
sensation or idea, or shifting perspective
- Pleasure - it feels
- Understanding - new knowledge, application
- Strength - empowerment, confidence, new skills
- Poise - grace, contentment, composure, and sense of
balance in life/school
Parents naturally want to play with their children. Serious content can be combined with play. Participants will play and learn the content quickly without realizing they are being trained or developed. Play can change the culture and mindsets of participants in any institution, public or private. Even the difficult to change educational
systems can be changed with play if it introduced into the curriculum lineup.

Our work evolves around play and technology as innovation is
changing the world every 5-7 years. Corporate America is complaining about the lack of skills deeming schools failures. The 13 year lengthy process of cumulative learning in schools to prepare children and their parents for the future world is not working.
However in the 21st century the new product is
intellectual property, all in the brain. Play accelerates
intellectual property, the automation its creates, the manufacturing and
information technology it powers.
