Hello,
My name is JenLi, Ung and I am a final year Digital Media Design student at Swinburne University of Technology in Australia.
I am currently working on a university project called ‘Curly Questions’ that aims to improve the public understanding of Science. As part of this project I am required to answer a question posed by an 11 year old student, at a science-based primary school in Uganda. The question will be answered in a form of an illustrated children’s book and by the production of an animation.
The question is:
(a) What is the life span of an elephant?
(b) Do elephants live in a family?
(c) How many months do elephants take to produce the young ones?
I am looking for an expert in this field to co-author the book (which will be approximately 200 words long) with me to ensure that the information is accurate and appropriate for children and also to provide feedback on my illustration and animation.
The time commitment from you would be about 5 hours.
I have attached the work that I have done so far, plus a more detailed explanation of the project.
My design portfolio may be seen here: http://opax.swin.edu.au/~1743066/JenLiUng_Website/ .
I would very much appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely
JenLi, Ung
