I created three interactive education modules for West Ed, a non-profit educational research organization. Each module was an interactive visual demonstration aimed at teaching kids about physics and biology.

This one is a demonstration of the Food Web, or how different levels of animals feed on each other, and create a balance in the correct numbers. The student is given a selection of life forms that are coexisting in a lake, and is asked to drag arrows from each fish to the one that consumes it. The demo checks if the arrows were drawn correctly, and if they aren’t, the student is shown the incorrect arrows and has to redraw them.
