Have you noticed how often spirals appear in nature? We think of these moments as Visual Connections. They happen when things share similar patterns, shapes, colors - anything one can imagine!
Visual Connections are intuitive and accessible, yet engaging for kids and adults alike. Each set of OuiSi has thousands of connections waiting to be found.
"I'm using OuiSi with my students to sharpen visual and critical-thinking skills. My students LOVE this game." - Kate T.
Critical & abstract thinking
Through inquiry-based conversation, students learn to think in critical and abstract ways. Learnings can are for brainstorming, prototyping and other design-thinking activities. The QR codes on the back of OuiSi Nature enable further discovery and investigation.

"As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I absolutely love this game! I can teach language skills as we play. I can target how pictures go together by colors, shape, function, and so much more. My 8 and 10 year old immediately wanted to play this as soon as they saw it!" - Ashley W., MS CCC-SLP
Durable and flexible
The OuiSi Guidebook is full of activities to suit the needs of students. Yet players often make up their own rules of play.
The Photo Cards are beautiful and durable, andit's okay to lose some or damage them without affecting playability. In fact, teachers can separate the set for multiple groups to use.
In other words, one or two sets can go really far in a single classroom.
"It's a great product, durable, and just all around a fantastic instructional tool for teachers!" - Lisa R.
Multidisciplinary and accessible
Visual Connections are inclusive and engaging, regardless of age, background or verbal language.
OuiSi games are flexible and adaptive, making them a fit in science, math, art programs and compatible with curriculum standards.

"We couldn’t love this game more! The engagement of my kids is a delight to see. Their creativity and insights, all overflowing within 10 minutes of play."
"My students learned how to collaborate with others, offer suggestions and build on another person's card. They can't wait to play again."
"Simple in design but profound in benefits, OuiSi brings the tools of visual learning to a game-based experience."
"I have a set at home and one for my classroom. Students are using the competitive format, their conversations are amazing! My own boys are making new games and rules."
