Everything about Mr. Topsy-Trump is upside down, or inside out , or back to front. He’s a funny sort of fellow. You ought to see his house, the front door is upside down to start with, and the curtains hang upside down!

Bee Amazed!

Bee Amazed! published on No Comments on Bee Amazed!

Bee Amazed, a mobile game I’ve been working on for a number of years with my friend Jaynee Howe, just went live on the Apple App Store. Bee Amazed is real-world, science-based content that teaches the youngest children about the importance of bees and the different roles they have in the honey hive, using mazes and other fun activities. Last spring we were invited to spend six weekends demoing our beta version at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. We got tons of great feedback from kids, parents and scientists, and it’s all built into this final version of the game. Go download it now:
