Remember earlier in the summer, we helped name the main character for an educational app for preschoolers? After many entries, your votes helped name him Zorbit!
And the app was released for iOS in August, called Zorbit’s Math Adventure.
Zorbit’s Math Adventure is now coming to Android, and we’re celebrating with another naming contest with a chance to win a Google Nexus 7 tablet among other prizes!
Now its time to name Zorbit’s home planet!
The contest is to celebrate the launch of the Android version of Zorbit’s Math for Preschool on Google Play.
Here’s the lowdown on Zorbit’s Math Adventure:
Zorbit, an adventurous 9-year-old alien, wants more than anything to travel to Planet Earth! But before he can embark on his awesome journey, your child has to help Zorbit’s mom get him out of bed! Once he’s awake, Zorbit’s mission is to finish building his spaceship and earn the stars he needs to fuel it – with your child’s assistance. Children earn a star for Zorbit with each new math skill they master.
Zorbit’s first stop is for some sticky, gooey, chewy bubblegum from his very own bubblegum machine. Then it’s off to visit Zorbit’s friend Zippy, who needs a hand feeding her pet, Oswald, who loudly burps and poops when he eats too much! After that, Zorbit’s friend Marty requires assistance counting spaceships as they fly by. Next it’s off to see Sgt. Scrambler, Zorbit’s tough but loving drill sergeant father, who needs some help with repairing rocket ships. The final stage before launch is assisting Chirp, the mechanic, as she prepares Zorbit’s rocket for space – everything from installing blasters to decorating the hull.
Each step of the way, children help Zorbit, absorbing new skills and knowledge as they prepare to blast off for Earth … and Kindergarten.
