Project Information
Title: Developing Children's Educational Software Android Application
Abstract: The Android application I developed is an education program for elementary school children. It will teach children to identify different marine animals, their sounds, a brief description of their traits and how they interact with their environment. This project serves two goals. I will learn how to program Android applications which is a very profitable and commercial area within computer science. I will also be saving kids from the mind numbing nihilism that will result from playing too many mindless games. I will use the Eclipse Android environment program the application. I will use the Android simulator to test the application. When the project is complete I will put it on an Android tablet. I will present my project to testers and see how they react to it, making the necessary adjustments.
