Triple Zero Kids Challenge App
Kids can learn about getting help in an emergency by playing games and solving mysteries on this helpful app. They’ll learn about safety messages and hear what happens when you call Triple Zero. Along the way they will meet the “Zeros” as they are guided step by step through the game.
This game is designed for children of kindergarten and primary school age and consists of twelve safety scenarios. The estimated game-play time is one hour, but can be played in shorter intervals.
The Game has ‘closed captions’ for those players who do not have a sound card, cannot use their computer’s audio or who may have hearing difficulties. Just click on the icon in the top right-hand corner of each game scenario to activate closed captions.
The game relies on narrative and voice-prompts. As such, competing PC noise in a computer classroom can detract from the experience. If available, the use of earphones for each computer will assist. In the event that earphones are not available, using a projector and a central game-play with one computer, using the closed captions option in the game or greater separation of players are all viable alternatives.
On starting the game, children will be asked to enter their postcode. You can assist by having this available to them. At the beginning of the game, children will see a scrolling ‘credit screen’ of logos of supporting emergency services and agencies. Please assure them that this is normal. You might challenge them to identify the ones applicable to their area.
Please encourage the children to play the game from home also. Those living in culturally and linguistically diverse households are good conduits for passing information back to their families. The game is also available to be played in a number of other languages including Hindi, Vietnamese, Chinese (Mandarin), Thai, Arabic and Sudanese (Dinka). This selection is made when entering the game through a menu at the top right hand corner of the screen.
It is recommended that you use the full-screen feature to help minimise the chance of players unintentionally exiting the game.
