Zyrobotics, an inclusive technology company with a focus on STEM-based products, consistently establishes its place in the world of educational apps by creating matchless products designed to stimulate learning in children. One of their latest apps, “Tommy the Turtle - Learn to Code” has earned the Gold Award for the Best Educational App.
Best Mobile App Awards prides itself “on recognizing great apps and app developers.” The handpicked committee of experts include designers, developers, and publishers. These judges focus on all aspects of each individual app, judging design, originality, creativity, functionality and overall performance before voting for their favorite.
With strong contenders like LeapFrog Academy and Magic Little Flowers, winning this award was a tremendous feat for Zyrobotics. The app was nominated along with thirteen other educational apps designed to stimulate the minds of young children in various ways.
“Tommy the Turtle - Learn to Code” complements the Zumo Learning System created by Zyrobotics. This system is designed to help children with all abilities fall in love with STEM. With its unique interface, it is accessible to young children with special needs. This app in particular was created to provide young children with a foundation in technology by teaching computer coding through a fun game.
Dr. MacCalla, CEO of Zyrobotics, emphasizes that “Learning to code prepares children for the world we live in today. Learning to code helps children develop problem solving and computational thinking skills. Even preschool and kindergarten age children can learn the foundations of coding.”
