My SUST House

My SUST House

My Sust House is a Bafta Award winning interactive game exploring what sustainability means and how it relates to our homes. We developed it with Screenmedia ofr SUST programme at Architecture and Design Scotland. It provides a resource for meaningful and effective learning and teaching opportunities across many areas of the 5-14 curriculum. The game has three parts:

My Sust House Game 1

Environment – explores ways to create a more sustainable environment looking at the location of a house and ways of saving energy, water and waste.

My Sust House Game 2

Building – challenges the player to build a sustainable house on a budget. There are choices to be made on different building materials, insulation, and powering and heating your sustainable house.

My Sust House Game 3

Town – provides a platform to learn about the typical pressures of growth on a small town in Scotland. My Sust Town focuses on ways in which housing, schools, transport, retail and energy could be developed in a more sustainable way. This incorporates five different activities within the town.

The material can be used in many ways, either for individual use or as part of a group activity. As well as providing interesting information, it stimulates discussion, presents problem-solving activities and provides a context for teamwork and decision-making. The games are a resource for meaningful and effective learning and teaching opportunities across many areas of the Curriculum for Excellence.
