Kids stuck virtual learning? The "Adoraboos" app teaches test prep, computer literacy, math, and more with games and unlockables.
Adoraboos is a multi-level interactive educational gaming app for iOS and Google Play developed by California-based app dev studio MyDream Interactive. The game is meant to be supplemental for at-home learning at a time when students across the nation are doing their best to adapt to online schooling.
Adoraboos is free to play, and offers a selection of mini-games across an "an ever growing collection of learning modules" to encourage gamer-students of all ages to "learn through play and repetition," the website reads.
Allison Huynh, the founder and CEO of My Dream Interactive, described the project's goal:
"As a mother and entrepreneur, I've dedicated much of my work to providing educational gaming tools for kids, and I'm truly excited to introduce The Adoraboos – a fun, creative learning tool that can help address the current education crisis as many students prepare to stay home instead of going back to their school's campus."

How It Works
Players recieve a cuddly little monster called an Adoraboo to chaperone them through the app. Upon completion of mini-games like Word Dragger and Decipher, players participate in an Adorabattle. The victorious Adoraboo gets a chance to win fun cosmetics, like hats and clothes.

The subjects currently offered to students include:
- SAT Prep
- SSAT/ISEE Prep
- Kid's Vocab
- Social Emotional Learning
Some of these topics, you'll notice, are pretty modern. Blockchain, for instance, is vital to understanding cryptocurrency like bitcoin, which interested analysts talk unceasingly about as a disruptive technology for the future. The Adoraboos website describes Social Emotional Learning, or SEL, as "a method of promoting holistic child development by teaching students skills such as self-regulation, persistence, empathy, self-awareness, and mindfulness."
