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:
