1. RACEYA: Cuztomizable, crashable cars that teach kids STEM!
Now here’s a cool recent find: Built by a lady founder Abigail Edgecliffe-Johnson and still in prototype phase (stay tuned!), RaceYa lets your kids race fully customizable fast cars, built using their own skills—to sustain high-speed crashes and still remain remarkably intact! The ingenious toy is a vehicle for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)—teaching kids about science, maths and engineering through play and discovery.
Take your kids out for an educational spin soon! Might we add, we’re active proponents of Raceya’s philosophy through our own math games, which are designed to bring out critical thinking, problem-solving life skills in kids:
2. SWIVL – Your classroom observational video & extra pair of eyes!
Ever wanted an observational (yet unobstrusive) tool that could keep an eye out on multiple students so you can understand the dynamics of how groups work—even when you’re not looking? It could capture the “eureka!” moments, or record learning struggles—while you give encouragement and feedback, without interfering in the learning process the whole time. As teachers, we could all use a few extra pairs of eyes in the classroom!
It’s like your very own classroom/home robot assistant, great for capturing and safely sharing educational videos on the cloud; observing, assessing and tracking learning progress; plus teaching ‘skill development’ using active feedback.
3. ZAP ZAP MATH – Your Teacher/Parent Math Reporting Dashboard
Every experienced teacher knows: if you could put 20 cents aside for every moment you spent marking papers, grading kids and doing paperwork—you’d be a millionaire by now! And that’s why at Zap Zap Math, we purposely built a Teacher/Parent Reporting Dashboard to help you keep track of kids’ math progress while they play hundreds of free K-6 math games independently (and you check in remotely, anywhere, anytime!).
Via the reports, you can know which areas your kids need extra attention in—and zero in on their weak points! Students can stay ahead in every mathematical problem-solving sense of the word, while having loads of fun.
