Orbit 

A free touch-based mobile game app to educate children age 8-10 about sexual abuse prevention. The project compiled learning objectives around sexual abuse prevention from latest international research. Participatory methodologies with children in upper primary school play were also used to understand the reward system in the games they play. The game is evaluated using standardised international measures, ‘What If’ situations, questionnaires and self-inventory.
*  The current update now works on tablet and does not require a login. It features more character customisations and has a quicker and easier completion time.
