A digital game that promotes critical thinking and is available online. 

It is also available as an app on students' tablets targeting both primary and secondary students.

This is the only online game in our national language which deals with elements of online safety within a Maltese environment. 

The game consists of two levels which target both primary and secondary students.  It encourages students to think in a critical manner about content/material they might encounter online and making the right decision.   

The game gives freedom to the children to decide what they think is right or wrong whilst also giving an explanation for each option.  At the end of each stage, there is a strong informative message for children to absorb and understand.
