Mums launch maths app created by their kids

1921_title.jpg

1921_image1.jpg€‹Two mums, Emma Allen and Jules King, have had an on the job crash course in app development and, with the help of their young children, are proud to launch Skoo Crew - a unique scooting game for kids, offering the perfect combination of education and fun.

Aimed at primary school children, the priority for the mums was to create an educational app  that kids would genuinely want to play. Emma says, €œSeeing the game through our children's eyes was integral to its development and the kids were involved at every stage.€ Jules adds, €œThe original design for the Skoo Crew characters came from a pencil drawing by one of our children. We responded to what excites them and their imaginations helped us to evolve the game.€
 
Players practice core maths skills, then help characters on their super cool scooters speed through fantastical 3D lands collecting skoobandz and avoiding obstacles against the clock. Children learn maths in a fun and interactive way and helpful maths tips are provided by the Skoo Crew characters. Players are rewarded with exciting power ups to use within game play.    
 
The launch of Skoo Crew is perfectly timed, as the expectation of children's maths skills rises with the introduction of the new curriculum. The focus of the game is on building and developing independent fluency in key maths skills, such as times tables and number bonds, strengthening concentration and memory.
 
The pair say, €œIn an ideal world, if children are 1921_image2.jpggoing to be on devices, most parents would prefer some educational benefit, but their kids also want to play cool games. We think Skoo Crew will do both and keep everyone happy.€
