GATE - Game As a Tool for Enterpreneurship is a project inspired by a long-term experience with young people preparing for labour market. Especially with those for who self-employment is in the centre of interest. GATE seeks to study, examine and foster the role and function of GAME as an instruction and education tool. Its objective is to point participants at game as an essential tool for education - learning by doing / learning by playing. There are two project activities to be carried out during the project period. First activity is to take place in Slovakia and last for 5 working days. SAPS, n.o.
