Future Geoscientists is a pair of fun games to allow anyone to imagine the future of geoscience! By collaboratively imagining the future, this game offers an accessible, creative and future-facing way to learn about the subject.

The games are designed to be played through an online video call with one person screensharing, or in person where everyone can see the same screen.

Game 1 is inspired by Situation Lab's "The Thing from the Future" while game 2 is adapted from the popular ‘would you rather’ format.
