Project summary

Science Strategic Award 

We will work with Okido, the arts and science magazine for children, to produce a lung-health character that will feature in three print projects (a magazine, board game and activity books), three digital projects (an app, a game and an animation) alongside a large-scale family festival including games and workshops. These are primarily aimed at the under-fives who are participating in a lung-health research study and their families. We will actively engage them in lung anatomy and function, lung infection and immunity, and the environmental impact on lung health. We will also distribute these projects to a wider public audience.
