In Collaboration With Trevor MacKenzie

Spark Curiosities and Ignite Inquiries

with OuiSi

We believe that "everything is connected" and that life is a richer experience when we are curious about ourselves, one another, and the world around us. 

The power of inquiry

For Trevor MacKenzie, inquiry-based learning is not just a teaching method—it's a movement. 

As an experienced Teacher, Author, Keynote Speaker and Inquiry Consultant, Trevor's passion is supporting schools in implementing inquiry-based learning practices. He is a highly regarded speaker known for his heartfelt storytelling, kind demeanour, and student-first philosophy.  

Trevor's other passion is collaboration, and we've teamed up to inspire educators and students alike to embrace curiosity and inquiry into every lesson. 

Both OuiSi and Trevor share a deep passion for curiosity and inquiry based experiences. Together "we see" the incredible potential of Trevor’s methods to revolutionize classrooms and believe that OuiSi can be used as a powerful tool to aid in this process.

Art Class Activities


My 8th grade art students enjoyed playing the connections game, then asked if they could sort all the cards by color! They raved about the interesting photos. I love everything about this...even all alone, it’s fun to sort through, like my grandmas button box

In a Class of its Own


A superb “game” to play with children, or adults! The intention, and care, shown by the creators of OuiSi is very apparent. I have played it at least a dozen times, with people of all ages, and it’s always delightful. In my experience as a mother, a grandmother, and an educator, I can say with assurance that OuiSi stands in a class by itself. Thanks you sincerely for giving us this intelligent, high quality activity that spurs creative thinking!! Well done!

Fantastic Classroom tool


This is a fantastic classroom tool. I have used this conducting teacher training as well as in my own classroom. It is very engaging to both students and adults and I love all the game examples included in the guidebook that is included. It was a wonderful entry event for the teachers and really helps students see connections better in nature. I highly recommend this product.

Collaboration & Connection


My middle school students LOVE this game! Groups of kids that wouldn’t normally want to work together are more than willing to connect over these beautiful cards. Thank you, OuiSi!

Wide Range of Activities!


I’ve been using OuiSi in my classroom for less than a week and I and my students—4K through Grade 12– absolutely LOVE it. In this photo, one of my more difficult students spent the entire class period laying out all of the cards just to see all of the images. The range of games/activities that can be done with the cards is amazing. I have 2 sets of each version and am just in awe of their beauty. THANK YOU!!!

SLP Skills + Play


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!

The origin of OuiSi

In January 2020, OuiSi's first Photo Card set, now known as OuiSi Original, was launched on ouisi.co. Our excitement about launching OuiSi was soon overshadowed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which quickly spread around the world in the months to come. While we were all subject to various forms of lockdown and quarantine restrictions, OuiSi was still able to make its way to people's homes, thanks to front-line workers across the supply chain. 
During this unprecedented period of uncertainty and isolation, we were happy to hear from customers that OuiSi provided a way to connect with their children (and grandchildren), engaging them with fun and mindful offline activities at home. By the end of the year, OuiSi had been embraced by over 19,000 customers with an average rating of 4.7/5. We knew we were creating something helpful and important that was truly cherished. We had to keep going...and growing.

Nurturing nature

Building upon OuiSi Original's positive reception, we set out to build our next set. Because OuiSi Original focused on capturing the marvels of the "everyday" in an urban environment, we wanted to offer an exploration into the vastness of nature and celebrate the beauty of our planet. 

Also, we recognized that OuiSi has an opportunity to shine a light on ideas and issues that are important to all of us. So, we partnered with nature and wildlife photographers from around the world who all had a passion for conservation and the protection of planet Earth.
