The Phylo(mon) Project: Women in Science and Engineering Deck

Based on the idea that "Kids know more about Pokemon creatures than they do about real creatures", Phylo is a trading card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex, and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity. It is an exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open game development that has grown to broach elements of game based science education, ecological literacy, and hackathan mechanics within the teaching community. 

WWEST partnered with AMBL at UBC's Michael Smith Laboratories, led by Dave Ng, to collaborate with a number of artists and designers to create a deck focused on awesome women in STEM, as well as issues pertaining to the challenges around gender equity.
