Norooz (Persian New Year)
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Norooz is a colorful children’s app that uses interactive features to explain the official start of the Persian New Year and the many traditions surrounding this festive holiday, which has been celebrated by Iranian people for more than 3,000 years.
In the Norooz app we introduce not only Norooz and the spring equinox, but many other events and traditions related to the Persian New Year. For example:
- Children will learn about Chaharshanbeh Soori, also known as the festival of fire, which is held several nights prior to the equinox
- They will gain an understanding of a Haft Sin traditional table setting.
- They will find out what happens on the 13th day of Norooz which is called "Sizdah bedar"
To strengthen learning, we’ve included several interactive features, including a make-it-yourself Haft Sin table and a hands-on explanation of the spring equinox that helps children understand the earth’s revolving relationship with the sun.
Languages: English & Persian
My kids love it
I have two daughters and since the new year they are still playing with this app. They have become experts with setting up the haft seen table on the app. They constantly make new ones and take pictures of it. And the song " nazanine maryam" has become their most favorite song. I would love to see updates and more addition to the app so it continually stays interesting for them. Thank you
Thank you !
What a wonderful tool and a great link to Babak and oznoz as well. Finally a generation of Persian kids have tools to connect to their culture. Some of the pronunciation can be improved but in all its a great way to explain Noruz to kids and have them learn while playing.
What a great app!
I used this at my daughter's school since she is the only Iranian in her school and she is 5 and everyone really enjoyed learning about some of our traditions.
Thank very much
