Making a splash: Commission launches child-friendly environmental app for smartphones and tablets


​The European Commission has launched an environmental app that can be downloaded to Apple and Android devices. Zoe Makes a Splash! is an interactive digital storybook aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11 and is free to download. The app tells the story of two inquisitive children who are shown the importance of water in society. Their guide is an articulate frog, who also alerts them to the impact of polluted water and shows them how it can be avoided. Fun animations and interactive features alternate with more serious educational sections, where users learn about the hydrological cycle and water treatment.

An online version of the story is also available, with a set of teaching notes to encourage project-based activities in the classroom.

The app and its online version are available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Polish.

For more information, please, visit the website of the European Commission.
