The Groundwater Foundation Launches Mobile App
The Groundwater Foundation has launched “Water1der”, a mobile groundwater awareness trivia game app, developed by SectorNow’s CleanEarthApps Division. The app is available free of charge from the Apple store.
The game is designed to educate everyone about our most precious resource – water -- through a fun, educational format. The game challenges players in their knowledge of groundwater basics, pollution prevention, conservation, irrigation, the water cycle, aquifers, recycling, watersheds, water use and wells. Players “spin” a wheel to choose a category and play their way through a variety of questions and activities and then see their final score.
Every segment of the community can benefit by downloading and playing Water1der:
- Teachers can use it as a learning tool in their classroom by having their students choose a category and compete against other students
- Community and business leaders can learn some facts and figures to help them in educating their communities
- Parents can use it as part of a family night to help everyone learn about this precious resource
- Kids will find it fun, interactive and easy to use and they will gain a knowledge of water
