Gallery: My Sust House: Interactive Game for Eco-minded Kids

 

My Sust House is a Glaswegian approach to sustainable education, exposing kids and teenagers to issues of sustainability in design and planning through an accessible outlet: the Internet. This interactive game is narrated by two fetching Scottish cartoon characters and comes complete with an introduction on sustainability and two games dedicated to exploring “what sustainability means and how it relates to our homes.” As Sean Connery knows, even the most mundane things can be made appealing through the addition of a Scottish accent, and this charming interactive education website lives up to that rule. Even the most diehard non-greenies will be charmed by this cute interactive website.

My Sust House features two games that can be played individually or in groups – one that looks at ways of creating a more sustainable environment and a second that challenges children to build a sustainable house.

This program is perfectly suited to hyper-literate tech-philes worldwide ages nine and up. Although geared to the 5-14 curriculum in the UK, this program could be used universally as a tool to educate the young (as well as the rest of us needing to brush up on our terms and skills). Complete with terminology for players and Teachers Notes, downloadable as a PDF, this is a modern day Mavis Beacon that gives testament to Mcluhan’s mantra, “The medium is the message.” + My Sust House

    Hi,

    I am developing green media website and would love to have this interactive software game incorporated within the website. It will be based around all things green, so if there is any way to obtain a legal copy of the software i would like to pursue.

    I like the characters and the overall theme of creating a sustainable environment within the game. It’ll will be used for educational purposes within the website

    Regards

    Good Morning,

    I work for an architectural company and was wondering what the cost is for My Sust House: Interactive game for eco-minded children? What would be the best way of getting this interactive game?

    Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.
