Due to the huge growth of the electronics industry, an increasing shortage of electronic engineers is experienced. The authors believe that educational projects, connecting electronics to real-life problems and applications, can convince students to choose for an education in the field of electronics. Furthermore, most students have insufficient insight in the contents of their studies at the moment they have to make their choice. A positive experience, for instance in the form of a team game, can have a huge impact on students’ career choices . The game contains several technical challenges and allows young people to experience and understand the possibilities and huge variety within the field of electronics.
