Outdoor play among children of the new generations is shifting, and not necessarily for the better. A considerable number of kids are missing out on spending their free time outdoors, and those who do engage often lack diversity. For instance, in the Netherlands, only about one-third of children playing outdoors are girls. These observations...

Most people are familiar with play as entertainment in the form of toys and games for children, but the same cannot be said for play as a means to energise for adults.

We want to find the convex combination S of iid Bernoulli random variables that maximizes P(S ≥ t) for a given threshold t. Endre Csóka conjectured that such an S is an average if t ≥ p, where p is the success probability of the Bernoulli random variables. We prove this conjecture for a range of p and t

Over the past decades the act of play has taken on an ever-decreasing form of<br/>importance in society. This not only leads to the absence of its accompanying<br/>architecture, but also to more boring, uniform and hollow spaces. With the ambition of designing for the homo ludens of today, research was first carried out into the characteristics...
