Early Start Discovery Space

University of Wollongong

The Early Start Discovery Space is a great interactive educational space for kids located in the grounds of University of Wollongong. To improve the experience of their Marketplace installation, we designed and developed a cash register & payment application. Delivered using pairs of iPads, it allows one child to act as a shop keeper and scan or lookup items from the store, and another child to select the required notes or coins to pay for their shopping.

Colours are used to encourage healthy food choices, and images of Australian notes and coins provide the opportunity for kids to learn the value of each currency while practicing their math skills - there's no change given from these checkouts, so they have to get it right!
