Darwin's voyage: a young Naturalist around the world

C. Darwin was only 22 years old when he embarked on the H.M.S Beagle for his notorious journey in 1882 to 1886.

This proposal for an experiential website depicts highlights from this epic journey, with the possibility for the viewer to scroll in time the vessel and travel with Darwin through his five years journey.

The aim is to convey Darwin's sense of curiosity as a 'Naturalist in the making', and learn about his thoughts and discoveries that shaped his famous theories.

The site features videos, audio and a quiz based on the interactive content to involve the viewer and reward the ones that answer correctly with the 'Young Naturalist' badge of honor.
