Game - Fast Car: Travelling Safely around the World


Fast Car, UNESCOFast Car is a racing game that helps you to learn about HIV and AIDS prevention and takes you on a tour of some of the World's Heritage sites.


The game aims to provide young people with accurate and reliable information about HIV prevention, intending to educate and entertain as well as promoting healthy behaviour. In this game, the player can race on circuits on five continents, and virtually visit some of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. It also presents images of sites and interesting facts about them as players race by.

There are two tracks for each continent - a Preliminary track and a Championship track. Every track has a set of check points. At the check point, one can take part in a Mini-Quiz, and possibly earn a time bonus. In the mini-quiz, the player will be asked a multiple-choice question related to HIV and AIDS prevention.

The game is part of the project entitled “Development of interactive multimedia tools on HIV and AIDS for youth” aiming to introduce more accurate and youth friendly HIV-preventive information materials in interactive multimedia formats and to fill the gap in the computer games area, particularly in developing educational games, which combine education and entertainment.

The computer game is used to promote dialogue, especially balanced-gender relations, and self-expression as well as present and share science content.

The game is available in English, French and Russian:
