PBS Kids Cyberchase Shape Quest App
PBS KIDS announced the launch of Cyberchase Shape Quest, a new app for iPad based on the Emmy Award®-winning series, Cyberchase. Kids, ages 6-8, are invited to follow popular characters Buzz and Delete in a fun-filled adventure that includes three math-based games focused on geometry, spatial reasoning, and problem solving.
Cyberchase Shape Quest includes “Patch the Path,” an all-new *augmented reality* game where kids travel through five different environments and apply spatial memory, visualization and modeling skills, while investigating, predicting, putting together and taking apart two- and three-dimensional shapes. Kids can use their device’s camera and a printable board game to interact with shapes and dimensions. The game board can be downloaded at pbskids.org/shapequest.
Additional games include “Feed the Critters,” a spatial reasoning game, and “Hide and Seek,” which focuses on geometry vocabulary.
Cyberchase Shape Quest is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.AppStore.com/PBSKIDS. The app will also be available next month for select Android tablets on the Amazon App Store and Google Play.
