Description: Project Syria was originally commissioned by the World Economic Forum and created at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, this immersive journalism piece focuses on the plight of these children. By coupling pioneering virtual reality technologies with audio and video captured at a tragic event, Project Syria transports audiences to the scene as the story unfolds.

Nearly one half of Syria’s 23 million people have been displaced in its civil war and no group has been as severely affected as children. Children make up more than half of the three million refugees living in camps or makeshift housing and some news reports indicate that children are actually being specifically targeted in the violence.

Review: The troubles in Syria are something the whole world should be acting on and better understood as there are many factors that have lead to the point of this countries destruction. Sadly Project Syria doesn’t seem to address any of these issues and thus makes the app kind of pointless. If you are going to make an app about something as important an issue as Syria you had best get all the facts and points across. This app sadly has none of them, thus making it totally pointless.
