Imagine if kids poured their time and passion into a video game that taught them Math concepts while they barely noticed, because it was so enjoyable
CHICAGO, IL, September 27, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- An interactive mobile game designed to stimulate children's creative problem solving and analytic skills, DetecThink players become fully immersed in a captivating world of detective case work by solving a series of the interactive assignments that include freeing a princess, unlocking a secret suitcase and solving the mystery of a missing crown. The only way to advance through the game is by completing addition and subtraction problems with the difficulty level adjustable to fit the child's skills. By the time children reach the end of the game, they will have completed eight game levels and solved almost 100 different math problems.
With one in three American high school students scoring poorly on standardized math tests, it comes as no surprise that nearly 60% of college students who start a STEM program (science, technology, engineering, math) switch majors before graduating. "We are facing an educational crisis and it all boils down to the fact that our children are simply not getting a good enough foundation in math. DetecThink's mission is to help solve this problem, one child at a time," says Grace Chua, co-founder and director of Intellipath Games.
The founders, who are based in Singapore, have been inspired by the words of Bill Gates at a speech to the Education Commission of the States' National Forum on Education Policy on July 2012. "Imagine if kids poured their time and passion into a video game that taught them Math concepts while they barely noticed, because it was so enjoyable." Intellipath Games made this happen with DetecThink by bringing together immersive storytelling, active learning and the psychology of play.
DetecThink offers both children and parents a variety of tools and functionalities designed to create a personalized experience. Users can create custom avatars inside the game. Parents can monitor the progress children make with a personalized report. Depending on how their child is performing, a parent can customize the difficulty level of the math problems. The app allows parents to create multiple user accounts for every child in the house.
The game is free to download and play. Intellipath Games is already working on creating the next mystery story. After its Beta test, the company reports that 8 in 10 users asked for more detective challenges, proving the engaging nature of the game.
"We are confident we are on the right track. The launch of DetecThink is great news to every parent out there who wants their child to learn more and become better prepared for school and life," says Grace Chua, co-founder and director of Intellipath Games.
Intellipath Games is a Singapore based digital start-up company with a simple mission: create a mobile gaming ecosystem dedicated to advancing children's education.
