Both women took part in the MOSAiC expedition of the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz center for polar and marine research and bring their expertise and experience to the storytelling of our first experience. A productive exchange has developed in which everyone involved learns from one another. In keeping with Heartucate’s corporate culture, we rely on collaboration and synergies.
Received funding of the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung!
18|12|2020 – We are happy to announce that the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM) has confirmed their will for funding of a first story development in the Heartucate multimedia format. Together with Nico Nowarra from Gamebook (dramaturgical advisor) and a representative of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar Research (scientific support) we will develop a first story in an interdisciplinary Writer’s Room (Alice von Gwinner as head author, Robert Schröder for the visual concept, Simeon Conzendorf for the interactive concept, Franziska Weser for format development) from January to March next year, that offers interactive opportunities to find your way around the Arctic, to learn about the complex of topics and the climate and to complete tasks together. Starting from this basis, we will build a bridge to the educational institutions and, in addition to the EDU experience with curriculum content, also design the teacher training.
We are very excited about this development and will keep you updated! So stay tuned!
