Voyages in Deep Time

 

Voyages in Deep Time is an exciting project which has developed free smartphone apps to encourage people to visit and enjoy learning about their local rocks and landscapes that tell us what our part of the world was like millions of years ago – in deep time!

The app Voyager deeptime is a game taking  the user on a voyage of discovery and survival in ancient environments. It is aimed at young people (ages 10 – 15 years) but can be fun for everyone.

Voyager deeptime is available on the App Store and Google Play.

A second app, called GeoExplore , is aimed at 'A’ level students or adults with some geological knowledge. It asks them to carry out an investigation at a local geological site and digitally provides the tools needed to do so. GeoExplore will be available later summer 2018.

Voyager and GeoExplore apps have been written for each of four beautiful and geologically varied locations in Herefordshire and Worcestershire so far. There is scope for other locations to be included – if you have ideas about this, get in touch.
