Apps: Brainventures


Remember Kizoom? Just in case you missed them, they were the team that brought us Brain Jump and Ned the Neuron. We really enjoyed their previous apps so we were excited to hear that they recently launched a new app – Brainventures!

We have heard over and over again about the importance of developing growth mindsets and how we can help children achieve that by educating them on how their brains work. That’s exactly what Kizoom’s apps do…

Kids who understand they have the ability to make their brains stronger perform better in school and are more successful later in life. They know they can improve, so they are eager to keep learning.

Inspired by research on growth mindsets, Kizoom created Brainventures to help kids become lifelong learners by giving them the inside scoop on how to make their own brains stronger… while having lots of fun. During the development of Brainventures, they worked with over 300 kids and collaborated with great advisors in games, education and neuroscience.
