Project YES is unique in the way that it has been working with children across several European countries to evaluate the content of the cartoon animation during its entire production phase. School children between the ages of 6 and 8 from Belgium, Bulgaria, Ireland, Italy and Poland took part in focus groups and questionnaires to provide the animators with their honest feedback on the characters, concepts and messages. This ‘pedagogic evaluation’ has been coordinated by Explora, The Children's Museum of Rome and local children’s museums in each country. The approach ensured that the final animation resonates with this age range.
The children and their educators also worked with the project team to develop and test a teaching pack which provides teachers with a tool to practically teach intelligent energy education and gives pupils an opportunity to explore energy issues in more detail, and of course have a little fun too! The teaching pack is available for download at www.myfriendboo.com
The results of the third and final questionnaire are available to download. The museums collected feedback from children, parents and teachers on the animation and on the teaching pack and their views are fascinating. Click here for the full report.
