Oresome World iPad app
This online resource is a downloadable iPad app about minerals and the energy sector.
The Oresome World app was developed by the Queensland Resources Council in collaboration with the Queensland University of Technology, the Minerals Council of Australia, Education Services Australia, the Chamber of Minerals and Energy (WA), and the NSW Minerals Council. Oresome World provides school with Australian Curriculum-related content via an interactive, multimedia game.
The app is aimed at secondary school students but is fun for anyone wanting to learn about the minerals and energy sector, the nuts and bolts of the operations and the careers and roles that make it all work.
Oresome World also helps teachers by providing curriculum links and notes so that the app can be used and tailored as an educational activity in the classroom. The app showcases content from the industry-led websites www.oresomeresources.com and www.peopleforthefuture.com.au.
This iPad-only app was developed with collaboration across four states and was an education category winner at the Australian ‘Mobi Awards’ in 2013 when it was in the top 80 of over 20,000 educational apps available online.
