Zumo Turtle incorporates game-based learning techniques with physical movement to give children a fun, engaging and immersive way to embrace and enjoy STEM and other subjects.
(PRWEB) August 04, 2016
It’s nearing back-to-school time and children everywhere are preparing to transition from summer fun back into the classroom. With summer “brain drain” a real thing—kids can backslide during vacation, losing knowledge acquired during the school year—parents want ways to get them acclimated to learning again. Zyrobotics’ Zumo Learning System is mobile technology that can do just that, giving children a leg up by making all-important STEM subjects fun and engaging.
While Zumo Turtle might look like a regular stuffed animal, the plush toy actually empowers learning through play for children ages three through seven. When children touch Zumo’s shell, math, science and reading games come alive on the connected tablet—a device kids already love using—to make learning fun. Using proven educational multisensory techniques, kids can step with their feet or press with their fingers to interact with Zumo Turtle, tablet apps and games. Zumo quickly becomes their best friend, playmate and teacher.
Zyrobotics’ Zumo Learning System was awarded the 2016 Seal of Excellence and Kid’s Product of the Year Award in the educational systems category by Creative Child Magazine.

“We developed Zumo after years of research into understanding how to make learning accessible for young children,” said J. MacCalla, Ph.D., CEO of Zyrobotics, creator of the Zumo Learning System. “Zumo Turtle incorporates game-based learning techniques with physical movement to give children a fun, engaging and immersive way to embrace and enjoy STEM and other subjects. As STEM continues to gain importance, learning math and science early can provide a head start for children in school and help prepare them for future careers in STEM fields.
“With math in particular, tactile-based learning helps children more easily grasp abstract concepts,” MacCalla said.
