A new iPad application and coordinating coloring book featuring a bronze fossil floor at the main entrance of C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital allows patients to take a virtual prehistoric journey.
The free application, called Foozel, was developed by U-M students and alumni and launched in November 2014 under a partnership between the U-M Credit Union and the U-M Health System.
Through the app’s adventure, the fossil floor breaks and transforms into a starry sky and leads the user through several games to track down fossils, repair the floor and return to present day.
Foozel was made possible by a three-year pledge of $342,000 from UMCU to benefit the C.S. Mott Children’s and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospitals.
