Can we foster curiosity in children about our natural environment? During the Interaction Design module at IDC School of Design, we (our group had 4 participants) were assigned a project - nudge children to explore their natural environment more, with one constraint - through the use of Colours.

Through the use of colours and textures, the Nature’s Palette app aims to help kids connect with their surroundings. Together, kids explore their environment and take photos of the many colours and textures they encounter. These images are then transformed into a palette of hues and textures that may be used to produce artwork, paintings and masterpieces.
