Develop the interface of the Space Scoops app for Universe Awareness.
UNAWE or Universe Awareness’ vision is to use the beauty and grandeur of the Universe to inspire young children and encourage them to develop an interest in science and technology. The programme also aims to introduce children to the idea of global citizenship and tolerance at a crucial stage of their development – to show them that they are part of an international community (source UNAWE.org).
The idea behind Space Scoop is to change the way science is often perceived by young children as an outdated and dull subject. By sharing exciting new astronomical discoveries with them, we can inspire children to develop an interest in science and technology. Space Scoop makes a wonderful tool that can be used in the classroom to teach and discuss the latest astronomy news (source UNAWE.org).
Keeping the interface as clean and easy as possible. So the children don’t get too confused by all the “smoke and mirror”. Making it friendly and “picture only” oriented. So they’ll feel the urge and curiosity to press on them, and learn all about their selected Space Scoop.
Feel free to download it from the Google Play store right here.
