Gooo! Team Mustard!
Our design partner at Odelay! brought us this project from the agriculture ministry of the Saskatchewan Provincial Government. The site was designed to educate youth about the mustard crop, a primary crop in Saskatchewan. The design and structure of the site was built as a set of simple educational games or puzzles to be used as a teaching resource for youth educators.
Games and Puzzles
Interactive functionality had to be completely thought through. We had to anticipate any and all interactions that someone might have with each of the 4 games or puzzles. For the visitor to progress through the games, we had to be sure that all of the prerequisites for each game were met. The first "game" required the visitor to read through each of the four steps of the growth of the mustard crop. The second "game" requires the visitor to know the 8 parts of the mustard plant. The third "game" wants the visitor to know the "math" of the mustard plant, and finally the fourth "game" is a simple multiple choice set of questions the visitor can answer to show what they've learned about mustard.
