Hands on the Map! – European project

We are happy to announce that Maps Museum has been selected for the second stage of implementation of DOORS project, a project funded by the European Union through Horizon 2020 programme and implemented by Ars Electronica in Austria.

The National Museum of Maps and Old Books in Romania wants to create an AR mobile application that offers edutainment experiences for children between the ages of 10-14. To create a link between non-formal and formal education, establish itself as an educational environment and diversify its audiences to include more school children and teachers, the museum will create content with 3 levels of difficulty addressing different age groups and referencing the school curricula. The museum plans to involve teachers in the design of the app and embed analytics tools to gather statistics and data about the users’ behaviour and engagement with the app.
