About this game

Learn STEM skills through play! Kids explore and learn engineering concepts with games that grow with them. They experiment, problem solve, and unlock new challenges as they learn. Design machines and roller coasters, build with robots, and explore obstacle courses. Learn STEM concepts with your child as they experiment with simple engineering tools while distance learning.

Play engineering games and learn from home! Help your child develop a better understanding of the world around them, anytime, anywhere. Our app empowers your preschooler to test engineering design concepts and solve problems on their own. Use early learning, curriculum-based tools developed by educational professionals that allow the app to grow with your child.

Our family games encourage parents and children to learn together. The parent section is an award-winning tool that helps you guide your child’s learning both in and outside the app.

The game is good, the graphics are better than the Kart Kingdom game. 7 of 8 games work. The sandwich maker didn't work. Fix that, and then five stars! Sorry I haven't gotten back. My Android device is a Hyundai.

Hello Janice, I am sorry to hear that the sandwich maker game didn't work for you. To help me troubleshoot the problem can you please email me at jbcrawford@pbs.org and tell me the make and model of the Android device you were using, and provide more details about how the game didn't work? I'd like to earn that 5th star! Thanks!

Running on a Lenovo tablet. Only two games work properly--Sandwich Machine and Animal Feeder. The other six load a blank (colored) or partially blank screen and give the audible instructions. Love the theory behind the games, just wish they all worked.
