This campaign has ended on 10-05-2018

Campaign by: Water Heroes   

Campaign Summary

Water Heroes is a game that introduces behavioral based environmental education in primary schools. The ultimate goal is to bypass the current water challenges in Palestine.

Problem

The current approaches to education in Palestine do not allow achieving national education targets. Kids do not have effective ways to become aware of environmental challenges and learn how to live more sustainably.

Water Heroes consulted with many kids and their parents, who all felt that current school curricula are too intensive, but only provide content inputs and do not sufficiently focus on a format that facilitates real learning. Kids complained that they are bored during the classes and they want more interaction and different types of exercises, rather than lectures from teachers and learning from books. When school is over many of them, like to play computer games.

Solution

The overall goal of the project is to solve the current water challenges in Palestine and build a more sustainable society that values water and other environmental resources by using innovative and effective educational means to address and deliver environmental concepts and ideas that is:- A unique idea, doesn’t exists in the Arabic speaking market – Introduce behavioural based environmental education in primary schools in Palestine- Games are fun and addictive!

Water Heroes developed a prototype for an interactive water education game, which kids can play on the computer or mobile phone. Tests with kids showed that they learn a lot about sustainable behavior and they have a lot of fun doing it. They get engaged in a hands-on learning process, which is attracting much higher attention than traditional printed material.
