This current collaborative project is to encourage and educate children about the 
variety of flora and fauna species within nature through exploration. Research 
has suggested that among recent times, the increase in AR technology and 
exposure to screens has risen in popularity. Although presented as a handbook 
for children, when a page is scanned by the camera of a smart device, a GIF 
animation with complementary information will appear on the smart devices 
screen to aid greater learning, making use of the children’s screen time.
