Let's play sewers...

8th December 2006 at 00:00
An educational game about a pampered pet mouse who gets flushed down a stinking sewer is being sent free to 10,000 schools.

The Flushed Away game is based on the new animated film by Aardman and Dreamworks and has been given backing by the Department for Education and Skills. The Insitution of Civil Engineers, who launched the game, said it would help five to seven-year-olds develop the maths and problem-solving skills essential to civil engineering.
