Inventions That Make a Difference: FreeRice

We all like games and FreeRice is a fun, educational, and helpful one featured in Design Revolution: 1001 Products That Empower People by Emily Pilloton.

It's fun because it's a game. It's educational because it teaches you vocabulary. It's  helpful because while you're playing and learning, you're feeding people.

For every correct answer you get 10 grains of rice in your rice bowl. When you win 10 grains of rice, 10 grains of rice are donated to United Nations Word Food Program initiatives. The more you play, the more rice you win and the more people you feed.

For those who don't enjoy vocabulary, there are other versions which include chemistry, geography, and languages.

So go play!
