Playpower creates award winning math games for kids - we make math fun, interactive and engaging!
By blending the science of learning with fun game design, we strive to create effective and engaging games that teach high-impact skills to learners around the world.
Playpower was founded with support from the MacArthur Foundation to help bring high-efficacy learning games to low-cost computers around the world (pop tech video). After building an incredible student team (at Carnegie Mellon and DAIICT in India), we began building online games to target high-impact skills like "number sense". Together, we won the National STEM Game Competition and the Marvel Educational App Grand Challenge! After conducting several classroom efficacy studies and building out games to support the Common Core, our app "Fraction Planet" was one of the winners of an educational app competition by the NYC Department of Education. We work extensively with classroom teachers, educational researchers and kids -- and we are truly excited to share our unique blend of learning science, game design and machine learning with students around the world!
