My friend, filmmaker, Carolyn M. Scott, Director of Solutionaries Northern California, has been busy with the development of a new app that serves to raise conscientiousness about climate change. This, the first of a series climate change solution apps for young people, will be launched on April 22nd (Earth Day) 2015. Please let your kids and their teachers know about this great educational app!
The following information is the company’s press release about this exciting new game that is intended for players of all ages:
A Real World Quest to Change the World
A unique blend of science, art and magic, the Solutionaries interactive eBook app invites participants, young and old, to join the quest to restore our planet.
Designed for elementary and middle school children and their families to explore climate change solutions, this first-of-its-kind interactive app takes viewers on a quest to discover seven “Solutionaries” (climate change heroes) who have implemented strategies to solve climate change.
Participants will find clues to the identities of the seven Solutionaries hidden throughout the eBook. The Solutionaries will remain a mystery until participants figure out the clues hidden in the story and the illustrations.
Celebrated artists have created “treasures” as part of the game play. The artists include Margaret Atwood, Lily Yeh, Fran Forman, Mia Tavonatti, Mac Adams, Marie Gibbons and Ron Seivertson.
The interactive eBook is written by award-winning playwright Kristin Carlson, with creative direction and illustrations by environmental educator and award-winning filmmaker Carolyn Scott, The Storybox Adventure follows Lily, a ten-year-old girl in Devonshire England, who is inspired to save the Dartmoor Warbler and in order to do so must discover seven Solutionaries.
The Solutionaries project is part of a larger mission to build a multimedia, online Climate Change Solution Library.
Dr. Jeff Harding superintendent of Healdsburg Unified School District says: “Our teachers are thrilled to be involved with this innovative and meaningful project. Solutionaries integrates science, problem solving and fine arts in an interactive format that’s sure to capture the hearts and minds of our students.”
Northern California: The interactive app, Solutionaries, will launch on Earth Day, April 22.
You can purchase the app from iTunes or Google Paly.
