I recieved this email recently and I thought I would spread the word.
Over the last two years LANDKA ® has been working on an educational game, aiming to develop young players’ interest in sky observation and astronomy. Kiwaka is now available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
The project was developed with the collaboration of the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and other leading scientific organisations to display over 120 stunning space images, as well as external links to further explore the cosmos. The app also includes several videos to assist younger users in finding and identifying important stars and constellations in the sky.
We believe that the members of your community have significant experience in developing the young ones’ interest in sky observation and we would really appreciate if you could help us share our work with them and collect their valuable feedback.
Please let us know if you want to receive a redeem review code to download the app from the App Store.
PS – LANDKA® is also releasing Kiwaka Story, a Book app for children that tells the tale of the characters in Kiwaka and their adventures to unveil the ancient mysteries of the stars. The interactive book is narrated (in the English and Portuguese editions) by the actor Diogo Morgado, who recently played the role of Jesus in the biblical epic film “Son of God”.
