First it was online birds and monkeys, and now a prize-winning and responsive website. Over the past year, Universeum has implemented a number of schemes together with IT consultancy Cybercom to encourage the curiosity of children and young people in technology and science. The website has now won an award, with Internetworld naming it the best tourism website 2016.
“We were commissioned to develop an inspiring website that brings access to knowledge and gets more young people interested in technology. To capture their curiosity, we decided to go with a visually appealing site that uses image-heavy content to reflect the social media experiences of young people. Getting youngsters interested in technology is also essential to Cybercom, so it is particularly pleasing that the website has won such a fine accolade,” says Johan Wallin, Cybercom’s Head of Region Sweden Mid.
In 2015, Cybercom also launched an extensive project together with the science centre to connect all the animals living in Universeum’s artificial rainforest to the internet. This is an ongoing project, initiated so that Universeum can learn more about the behaviour of different species, but also as a security precaution in case a visitor decides they want to take one of the animals home with them.
