The Medieval Lund app was designed by students from Katedralskolan, a sixth form college in Lund. The project forms part of several courses such as strategic communication.
“We have so many courses where you have to just sit and study, you feel trapped. It's fun to do something creative and practical”, says Emma Olin who is eighteen and the third year of the social science program at the School.
Emma Olin is one of 150 students at Katedralskolan who created the app as a school project. The students have been helped with programming and design by external companies, but apart from that they did it all themselves. They researched, wrote factual texts and translated the app's content into Danish, English, German, French and Spanish.
The app is free to download and available for both Apple and Android.
