#14 Keep Off

Keep Off Virus

As the world re-opens and children go back to school, personal hygiene will be more important than ever. But hygiene can be tricky, especially when young children are involved, calling for a novel tactic to inject fun into what may be deemed as overwhelming tasks for kids.

Keep Off, a gamified tutorial, was created by brand marketing agency GREY to help parents in getting their kids to adopt various precautious steps into their daily routine autonomously. This comes after hearing from parents that kids still do not fully understand what the pandemic is about, and struggle to follow instructions to stay safe.

Throughout the game, kids are tasked to follow instructions, and make sure their character maintains personal hygiene to unlock the next level. Each level aims to educate kids on one specific action to keep COVID-19 away, such as wearing masks, cleaning toys, social distancing, washing hands, and more.

By making sure that the steps are memorable and putting kids into familiar scenarios that they would face on a daily basis, Keep Off serves as a tool to help parents and teachers in getting young children to adopt safe habits as they adapt to the new normal.

SCCC Bak Chang Hunt mini game

Dragon Boat Festival, Duanwu Festival, Dumpling Festival – beyond these familiar variations, did you know that the festival was also known as Health Festival?

To ward off evil spirits, the ancient Chinese ate nutritious rice dumplings, and kept fit by participating in dragon boat races!

Find out more about our Duanwu traditions and engage with our Chinese Singaporean culture with a series of digital offerings by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre. Dive into the thick of a dragon boat race with our interactive mini-game Bak Chang Hunt, and seek out the 12 hidden changs within 30 seconds while uncovering facts about the festival. Aside from the mini-game, the Centre will be launching two engaging videos on the heritage of Duanwu Festival. From the process of making a rice dumpling to the myths surrounding the festival, viewers can glean insights on how the festival is celebrated by the Chinese Singaporean community today.
