The Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES) provides education on sustaining limited resources such as food, water, and energy. We created The Chook, an interpretive mobile app, to enhance communication between CERES and its visitors by providing supplementary, educational information on CERES park features and environmental sustainability practices. By interviewing CERES experts, researching sustainable technologies, surveying visitors, and gathering user feedback, we generated and populated The Chook’s content with the text, images, and audio files.
