About the Games and App
Kids ask the greatest questions. And now there’s a place where the answers come to life. Finding Stuff Out Online is a world of games, humour and surprises, where all the great questions of the universe are explored. It’s a single-player game world where kids are in the driver’s seat. In Harrison’s attic, they can play games, watch videos and connect with the host of the show. It’s part of an integrated cross-platform experience that brings science to life for kids!
In season 2, Harrison’s Garage, a new location was added to the Finding Stuff Out online world, where kids help Harrison conduct experiments, analyze the results and form conclusions about scientific concepts.
A mobile app on Android and iOS platforms was also introduced, taking some of the activities from the traditional web to the viewer’s favourite device. Part science reference tutor and part interactive experiment, FSO’s mobile app engages viewers with science facts and entertainment wherever they go.
Finding Stuff Out season 3’s digital media component will build on the success of the first two seasons. New games will be available on the web and mobile, and entirely new for season 3, is an e-zine series. Collecting research notes, pictures, and clips from all three seasons, each e-zine will follow a new educational science theme.
