Students launch board game


A group of students from Richard Lander School in Truro are launching an innovative new board game this week as part of a national Young Enterprise scheme.

The group, all aged 14-15, have designed and produced ‘kNot a bored game’ from scratch and will be marketing it for the first time at a special Young Enterprise event in Falmouth this weekend (March 21).

Eloise Ireland, student member of the kNot Box team, said: “As a business, kNot Box has blossomed. We’ve built so much confidence in a number of ways including how we market ourselves.

“Shortly after the Young Enterprise Christmas Trade Fair we were lucky enough to be interviewed by BBC Radio Cornwall, and featured on it twice that day.

“We were delighted by this achievement and the confidence boost it gave us – teachers and our business mentors flooded us with praise and tips.”

The team of 17 students have worked with a number of local businesses as part of the production of the game including BJ press and Bath St Boxes. kNot a bored game, which is about bringing families together, will retail at £14.99.

The Young Enterprise Spring Fair runs from 10am till 3pm on Saturday March 21 at Events Square in Falmouth.
