12th Grader Lucas Sosnick Creates Educational Card Game
October 07, 2021
Congratulations to 12th grader Lucas Sosnick, who recently launched a new educational card game titled "Crisis on Cardea."
When asked what influenced him to create the "Crisis on Cardea," he said, "During the pandemic, I, along with most of my friends, felt very isolated from society and even other family members. Even my immediate family seemed to be on their devices most of the time. As such, I decided to create an educational card game to bring people together, away from their screens, and connect in a positive way. "Crisis on Cardea," aims to teach players about the many heroes that came out of the pandemic, not only to honor their service but to help inspire young people to learn more about a potential career path." 100% of the proceeds from selling the game are going to fund this project and, for every game sold, one will be donated to public schools.
Lucas, who has attended Léman since PreK, holds a variety of leadership roles at Léman, including the Model UN Co-President, the alto-saxophone first chair in the Léman Jazz Band. He is working towards his Gold certification as part of the Duke of Edinburgh club and last year, he was accepted into the Pioneer Academic Research Program and advanced to the final round of the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad. This summer, he participated in the Summer Science Program, a prestigious enrichment program for rising seniors affiliated with the California Institute of Technology, Harvey Mudd College, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
We are so proud of Lucas for engaging in an impressive initiative that exemplifies our learner profile in action. You can learn more about Crisis on Cardea on Instagram.
