The question to the children was: How to ensure that olympic buildings contribute to a better life for the people in the Olympic city.

Using specially-designed aluminum sticks, the game is similar to lacrosse, only instead of a ball you’re throwing and catching an engineered, aerodynamic double-decker disc. Spread out or play close, the disc can fly up to 30 yards.
