OMHA launches Water Keepers app
The Ontario Museum of History and Art recently launched Water Keepers, an interactive mobile application that complements its permanent exhibit, “Built on Water: Ontario and Inland Southern California.” The app is aligned with Common Core and Next Generation Science standards and available on the Google Play Store and Apple Store, by searching “Water Keepers.”
“Through choose-your-own adventure storytelling and thought-provoking puzzle challenges, Water Keepers transports players across time, immersing them in the challenges faced by three unique characters and their water-related dilemmas,” a news release read. “The application introduces you to three water professionals: a citrus farmer, a water quality manager, and a water resource engineer.
The app, the museum’s first, aims to educate and empower users to make informed decisions regarding water conservation.
“As we invite the community to try it out, we encourage everyone to further their understanding of the importance of our water usage and to care for this vital resource,” Miriam Valle-Mancilla, the Museum’s Curator of Education, wrote in the release.
