The field of Anthropology discusses many topics and climates unique to the human condition. Because of the lack of information and exposure available to students in high or secondary schools, Anthropological discussions and fields are not properly available to the public before deciding to enroll in further education. This project is one of cultural exposure, designed to appeal to students before choosing a career path to further their options as global individuals. To do this, elements of linguistic and cultural anthropology, expressed through poetry and word play, are used to provide a new way of looking at culture via a connection, a bridge, that the student is more than likely familiar with. This activity works to incorporate anthropological ideas and fields into a game to draw attention to anthropology and culture.
