App design and development for a children’s game to promote interest in science and technology
Developed an online game to promote interest in science and technology among Cambodian children ages 4 – 8
There is little content available in Khmer to encourage Cambodian children to engage with science and technology. The British Embassy developed a children’s book that featured ingenious inventions of a young girl. The challenge was to make the content more widely available and more engaging for Cambodian children.
MangoTango developed the storyboard, the game play design, wire frames, user experience, the creative elements, and built the app. We tested the game play with children age 4-8 to ensure that it was fun and engaging.
The final app required just the right level of skill for young children. The app was promoted via social media.
There were over 17,000 downloads of the app, giving many Cambodian children the opportunity to imagine creating their own inventions.
