Thousands of children across Nepal are set to enjoy STEM activities and competitions for free on their own mobile devices with the Citizen Science.

For the first time, Nepalese children will be able to access hands-on digital experiments, science competitions, and fun interactive STEM learning experiences for free on their smartphones, in their native Nepali. Kids can compete to win lots of prizes as they learn about the world around.

The Nepali release of the Citizen Science app empowers the schoolchildren of Nepal to take part in science-based activities both in and out of the classroom, and rewards kids for their participation with redeemable points.

The Citizen Science is sponsored by Cisco and Tribal Planet.

Updated regularly by Tribal Planet’s partner scientists around the world, Citizen Science activities utilize students’ smart devices, with their wide array of built-in sensors, as data-collection tools to demonstrate the underlying laws and patterns that connect the natural world.

In addition, these fun lessons transmit environmental and experimental data back to scientists, so the children of Nepal will themselves assist in global research initiatives while they learn.

Citizen Science content is fully gamified: students earn points as they participate in activities and competitions. Points may be exchanged for fun, important and lasting rewards such as science kits, live music events, celebrity visits to local schools, and educational resources to give back to students’ communities.

Current available rewards are shown at CitizenRewards.mobi.

Citizen Science is available for download on the Nepal App Store today.
