The COMnPLAY Science project has created the COMnPLAYer app which helps children discover and learn about science and enable them to have their say on what it actually means to them. The app includes a series of entertaining stories featuring Steamo, the quirkiest AI Life Coach in the world! The stories build on the principles of science capital – what you do, who you know, what you know, and how you think. The stories link to quizzes which encourage users to reflect on their own science capital, and their responses will help COMnPLAY researchers to understand just how ‘science-y’ young people across Europe believe themselves to be.
The app interface is available in: English, German and Polish.
The stories and surveys included in the app are available in: English, Spanish, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian and Greek.
