On March 15th, a new way of campus touring was introduced through the release of an app called “Tambang-Tambang”. This app, available for free both in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, presents a scavenger hunt-like game for students to enjoy while touring the campus. Tambang-Tambang, which was originally devised as a class assignment, was recently actualized  by the hard work carried out by four HYU students: Shin Kang-soo. Noh Ung-gi, Yoo Eun-seo, and Kim Na-yeun.
The idea to establish a new product was sparked in between Shin Kang-soo and Kim Na-yeun while doing a team project for their second-major class. After organizing and presenting the system, they were able to gain support from Seo Jin-seok, the Director of HYU’s Social Innovation Center, and Yoo Eun-seo and Noh Ung-gi later joined in to further assist in developing the application.
Although it may have been an easy start, the ensuing process was not as simple. Yoo Eun-seo shared the difficulties they faced saying, “Because the app was focused on making campus touring more fun, the game had to not only be educational but also entertaining.” She also mentioned how the team often had debates on which function should be applied to the app in order to serve its purpose. Despite these difficulties, Kim Na-yeun stated that once the app was completed, she felt “proud of the team for never giving up and continuing until the very end.”
Tambang-Tambang, when it was released, took part in letting students and visitors find out about the university’s symbolic sculptures and buildings. According to Shin Kang-soo, before the creation of Tambang-Tambang, “it was hard to explain all these features and their symbolic meanings to those who visited the campus, because a campus tour guide can’t stand by the tourists all the time.” Tambang-Tambang turned out to be an efficient guide in spreading campus knowledge. The game consists of four courses that take players on different journeys to find particular sculptures or department buildings, which are displayed as silhouettes on the app. Once the players find what is displayed as a silhouette, the players are required to take photos of the matching structures and read the description of the sculptures or buildings.
