Current research

Drawing app for kids

This research project is a drawing app for young children (3–6 years old) that not only gives them a fun way to draw but also teaches them about local wildlife. The research involves comparison with a similar app to see how the differences in features are perceived by the user.

The aim is to make the app part of an exhibition in Te Papa, but this is not yet approved. A further review will take place in August 2019.
