This is Solar Bear. Solar Bear is an iOS application (written in Objective C) aimed at kids ages 7-12 to instill environmental consciousness, introduce "green" habits, and raise awareness of clean energy alternatives. The goal of the "game" is to maintain Bearnard's comfort levels by lowering CO2 emissions and keeping his environment clean. The solar panel, or the "clean energy factory", generates clean energy to keep CO2 levels low. Kids can earn solar points by keeping the solar panel out in the sun to generate clean energy or by removing trash from Bearnard's water. If the energy factory is not in use or Bearnard's environment is not kept clean, then CO2 levels will increase, smog will become more apparent, the iceberg will shrink, and Bearnard will begin to panic.

Kids can earn solar points by keeping the solar panel out in the sun to generate clean energy or by removing trash from Bearnard's water. Points can be exchanged for accessories to customize Bearnard's appearance.

Through this application, we will be able to shape kids to make environmentally conscious decisions and help the environment one Solar Bear at a time.
