The ‘talkback’ app is designed as a ‘pick the winner’ style trivia game. The app will contain 10 categories of ‘-est’ style questions designed to appeal to both small and large groups of people.
The app begins with a randomly selected question from one of the 10 categories. After the app is initiated, the question is displayed. The question then transitions into the presentation or ‘zoom’ section. This zoom section showcases the three possible answers for the question with a corresponding physical location. After each of the three possible answers are shown, the question is restated along with the physical location representing each choice. A timer is started and the players are then given 3 hints which may sway them between the choices they have already made. After the conclusion of the 3 hints and the timer reaches zero, the answer is revealed. The user(s) is/are then prompted to select the question category for the next round, or subsequent user(s).
The app aims to provide an interactive quiz experience for small to large groups of people and educates them on the different attributes of the ecological areas and inhabitants represented in the Life exhibit of the museum. The app aims to:
- Inspire groups to explore ecosystems and promote a sense of community
- Provide an engaging and educational experience for small or large groups
- Engage groups in such a way that accounts for group dynamics in a physical space
