From the design, to the content and code, Bucket Hustle was created by a team of young people at YRI, a program where young people partner with designers and developers to create apps and interactive news content.
With this fun, educational game, users test their knowledge while catching raindrops and answering questions about the west coast crisis. They rack up as many points as possible in a frenzied 45 seconds, and get the questions right to bring the parched environment back to life!
After covering the California Drought for National Public Radio (NPR) and National Geographic, Youth Radio decided to educate the public on this issue by using technology. “The best part of making this app was that we were given a real-life, relevant issue to build from. It gave us an actual incentive to create the app, which I think made developing it more fun,” says YR Interactive Fellow, Storm White.
Android users can now download Bucket Hustle from the Google Play Store.
