Environment-Themed Education Apps on Kickstarter

Cultural anthropologist Michael Leifer and app designer Jory Prum, aka ecodads, hope to raise $20,000 on Kickstarter to fund the development of two educational iPad apps for the California Environmental Protection Agency. The apps will be distributed to schools, teachers, parents and students in California to help build awareness around environmental issues in the state. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Upon completion, these APPS are going to initially be used in theManteca and Calaveras School Districts in California but will be available to anyone who wishes to download them. ecodads and CALRECYCLE are also currently in the final stages of negotiating a cumulative license for all 85 Units.”
