We set out to design a website that was fun to look at, use and interact with. With help from students of local schools, we ran photoshoots, asked questions, learned what they found interesting and tailored our design and content accordingly.

The Learning Zone was designed to appeal to an audience in the age range 8-16 with interactive features and a fresh, space-y design to suit it’s subject material – monitoring the weather from space.

The site featured five themed areas, supports a variety of interactive content from 3D satellites to downloadable papercraft and was home to a number of entertaining and informative animations voiced by science celebrities and various popular annual competitions.

Commissioned by European organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the Learning Zone was aimed at getting kids interested in engineering, space, weather and climate monitoring and received around 9k visits per week from across the globe.
