Löewenzahn is a popular learning TV series in Germany focused on solving all the zillion questions in the continuously evolving minds of children. Based on this series Quinto, a German publishing organization, approached our Team to develop an iPad app as an offshoot of the TV Series. This offshoot would be focused on all learning related to Electricity. The app would have to make learning not only informative but interactive!
The solution lay in creating an app which can be easily operated and studied by children; which is complete with the discovery of surprising elements, while learning about electricity and energy.
Nine different lessons have been embedded, each giving a brief and informative explanation. Umpteen pictorial images and interactive simulations are added to make the app as engaging as possible. Craft instructions are also embedded to motivate kids to craft their own, real and little experiment. The App is developed and designed not only to entertain kids but also educate them on electricity and various ways to generate it.
There are additional elements for every lesson and learner. Some of the interesting features - making the elements work/interact by blowing into the mic or titling/rotating of iPad. An image gallery with zoom-in function and videos are also embedded to make understanding easier. As a value addition we have incorporated a quiz and couple of games too. To ensure hassle-free use of operation we have created a detailed page of help.
The Value Take-away
We delivered a completely unique app with just the right amount of content combined with surprising features to engage children and possibly even adults, making the whole learning process playful and exploratory.
