Why do you think you will win the Grand Prix this year?
Our hope is to make games even more necessary for learning than before. In a recent study by SRI International, games help disengaged students improve in their learning by a whopping 25%. Students who are already engaged and good at learning improved on an average of 12%. Games are a natural and impactful way to learn. After all, creatures in the wild play to learn and hone their survival skills.
Students who play our game report that they remember 90% of the chemistry concepts taught in the game! There were also year 11 students using it to revise for their upcoming IGCSE exams. Within three days of launching our campaign, we became one of Kickstarter’s Projects We Love and Steam Greenlit within a week and a half of launching our game. We have also been recognized by the Cambridge University Students Union three years in a row and obtained a 5 Star Rating from The Educational App Store. Very recently, we have also won the MSC Malaysia APICTA Award for the Best E-Learning category. If you have gotten this far, thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us!
