The day started with a card game played by a team of six that created the profile of a character from age 13 to 25.

The alumni act as team mentor and lead the delivery of the game. 

The game involves team discussions to decide the team's response to events that life presents.

The teams build their character as a life size puppet.

The team script a presentation by their character as a person coming into school to talk to 13 year olds.
