The idea: Put bluntly: Education sucks currently - especially for children. We're given a textbook, list of words, etc. and asked to memorize them. Even when students study, the typical thing to do is to slum on the couch and stare at a textbook straight for 8 hours. Most of the time, students fall asleep out of boredom.
We noticed this and thought: What can we do do make education more engaging? The answer? Gamifying it.
Everyone loves games. We took a look at current problems in educational games and discovered the reason why it hasn't been successful are: -Teachers have no use for them because they rarely contain material they want to teach in class -Current educational games have no 'engagement' factor. Usually they just list out questions and you answer a question to the computer's liking. -Not sleek enough (lacking good UI/UX)
