Nature Superhero is the companion app to Pacha’s Pajamas. Nature Superhero is an iPhone/iPad, Android and Blackberry app in the real world impact genre for youth in the 5-15 age range. It is designed to prompt youth to take real world actions that improve the environment. Dynamic reports will measure the real world impact from the verified actions of players, teams and the community.
How The Nature Superhero App Works
In the early levels of the Nature Superhero app, players become a Pacha’s Pajamas Avatar voiced by Mos Def (Yo Gabba Gabba, The Boondocks, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe), Cheech Marin (The Lion King, Cars, Beverly Hills Chihuahua), Majora Carter (Peabody Award winning public-radio series The Promised Land), Talib Kweli (Black Star). Players earn points, unlocks and badges for completing missions responding to environmental crises in the Avatar’s home (e.g., Whale uses sonar to locate plastic from the ocean, Jaguar battles to stop deforestation, Mushroom cleans up oil spills…). In later levels, players and teams engage in RW actions and report back through photos and videos to win cool prizes.
