Akin to the arcade game Space Invaders, Waste Invaders is an arcade game to teach people how to sort their waste in a fun and interactive way that will lead to people changing their habits more than watching a video or reading a booklet. Games are far more engaging than videos and having an arcade game on a university campus will stand out and draw attention effortlessly. The other addition is accessibility, as arcade games are simple and can be played by all audiences. Its purpose is to educate people on their waste management habits, getting people to sort their waste properly. The results would be measured using player scores as we cannot track down every bit of waste someone who plays the game ends up producing but this will test what they’ve learned. The impact will lead us closer to having a zero-waste future where even our “trash” gets re-used.
