Jo Booth OTR/L from Teachers With Apps says:

Watching kids play Avokiddo’s new app, DNA Play, is like seeing the birth of STEAM education for the very young in action. (STEAM stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.) DNA Play is wildly creative, brave, and most of all outrageously fun. In the U.S. there is a big controversy on when and how to present certain subjects of studies. We wait…and wait…and wait, and then wonder why kids are having such a hard time retaining the massive amount of material when subjects are eventually broached. Avokiddo is showing that it is never too early to start, and laying down foundations in early learning may just set pathways of understanding in motion. The subtlety of how information concerning the magic of science and genetics is presented is inspiring, and in the guise of creating little monsters in an open play format.

Avokiddo always pushes the edge to teaching kids how to think. In DNA Play, kids look at who they are and what are the possibilities with someone who is different. Looking at the ability to change, not only sets up compassion for those that cannot, due to a genetic predisposition, but also what is possible for what one can overcome. AND it just may give a child the idea of how to help another. Kids, who play DNA Play, just may be the next discoverer in the cure for cancer or other disabilities. One never knows what impact a little play makes, and that is why Avokiddo and DNA Play is a Top Pick and a favorite of TWA!
