Our goal is to provide engaging apps that help a child learn through play. This is because when playing, children solve problems without realizing they are learning. This leads to a more engaging experience and a deeper understanding.
MessingAroundWith was founded to develop educational apps that encourage children to learn through play. Rather than delivering lesson material followed by practice questions, these apps give the child tools they can ‘mess around with’ in order to help them think through the process of how they solve a problem. Significant research suggests this leads to deeper understanding, particularly for mathematically-based subjects. Apps will be available on the iPad, Macbook, and Windows platforms.
