Media designer and artist Alex Mayhew developed an interactive way for children to teach their parents about history with the kids app 'Time Tremors.'

'Time Tremors' puts the power into a child's hand as they teach and guide the adults around the history of artifacts and artwork rather than the other way around. Using an iPhone or iPod, the child can the 'Time Tremors' app and uses clues and images to find, locate and collect 'Time Treasures' around the museum or gallery. Perfect for children seven and up, 'Time Tremors' is a great way to get kids excited about learning while they hunt through space, science, history and art.

Launched on May 26 in the world's very first treasure hunt, the 'Time Tremors' kids app was featured at Toronto's Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and plans to be available soon to museums across the world.
