Abstract:With sustainability becoming more and more important with constantly evolving rules and goals the University of Twente has to improve on this aspect as well. The spe- cific area discussed in this report being waste separation. One of the biggest barriers to proper waste separation is a lack of education on subject and that is the issue this report tries to find a solution for. Thus the Research Question is: ”How can the UT community be educated on waste separation in a playful manner using a physical installation?” To answer this question the creative technology design process will be used. First background research is done and stakeholders requirements will be formed. These will be used in order to come up with concepts and of the final con- cepts, one will be built. The concept build was like an arcade type machine with a story and 2 mini-games. The installation was successful in educating the community and users enjoyed interacting with it. The 2 player aspect used was very much en- joyed by the users. For similar research would be wise to try and multiple iterations made throughout as this allows for more feedback and likely even better results.
