During the AppHop Pop-Up Gaming Hub participants were able to get a thorough understanding of AppHop, the topic of entrepreneurship, and the ever-growing importance of developing an entrepreneurial mindset to succeed in today’s world.

The participants had the opportunity to try the digital breakout resources developed in the framework of the project and have also actively

participated in the “creating your own digital breakout” activity, where we conducted a brainstorming session and gave the participants some time to outline a digital breakout addressing one of the EntreComp competences.

The participant’s feedback from both sessions was very positive. They have revealed to have particularly enjoyed completing the digital breakout challenges and have commented on their relevance to the project’s target group. The project as a whole was praised for being innovative and appealing to VET learners.
