The Next Generation Preschool Math (NGPM) project, funded by the NSF DRK-12 program, has released its first game into the App Store (ipad only) entitled “Gracie & Friends Birthday Café.” This is the first of 8 games that will be released between now and the end of January! These games were the product of a collaboration between researchers at EDC & SRI and developers at WGBH.
Our goal at the moment is to have as many people download the game (its free) as possible, so that Apple will promote our work -- so please download the game, post the link facebook/twitter, and share with those who have preschool age children!
You can find links to the press release, game, and a plethora of other information about the project below:
