Many memorials are located in the area of Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. Every day these places are speechless witnesses for the exchange of opinions, successes, failures and also enchantments, emotions and discords of the generations of students, who many a time are not aware of their existence. Meanwhile they came into being for reminding of the people and events that marked themselves in the history of Alma Mater in Toruń. Moreover they want to prompt to broaden knowledge about them. With the aim of restoring the memory of the places of Nicolaus Copernicus University there was organized a scientific-educational project: Nicolaus Copernicus University students towards the places of (non)memory. During this project (8 June 2012) the location-based game, under the same title, was carried out. This venture joined historical content with the pedagogical method of its modern transfer. This idea was designed to popularize knowledge about the memorials of Nicolaus Copernicus University. In addition to this, participants could create their civic competences and could get new experience, which can be a foundation of their academic identity. Project was based on the methodological framework of the action research.
