Create and Expand Areas of Interest
CreateAndExpand was founded in 2021 and is a space where women and girls can collaborate, tell their stories, and create games and simulations that will benefit Africa. Games with African characters and storylines will encourage girls to think out of the box and give them wings to fly. The focus of CreateandExpand is STE(A)M but all types of games will be created. Boys will not be excluded but the focus is on girls.

Game-based learning and gamification. How, what, and why
