Looking for SF Bay Game Testers!

Are you an elementary school teacher in the Bay Area? Or do you run an after-school program? We’d like to visit your school for an hour or two and show you and your students our new games. Students are our Game Experts – they find our bugs, challenge our assumptions about learning, and offer great suggestions for how we can improve our gameplay. We try to inspire them to consider designing video games as a career option, and encourage them to study the fundamental skills that lead to that profession: math, writing, science, and the arts. If you’re interested, email us at to arrange a convenient time to visit.

  1. Hi,
    I’m a 5th grade teacher at Discovery Charter School in San Jose. I got a grant last year for 6 classroom iPod touches and Motion Math has been a huge favorite! I incorporated into my math centers during our fractions unit and it showed great results and very high engagement in learning. I’m curious as to what other apps you are working on or how we can help with feedback so that you can continue doing what great work you do! I know the kids have already had requests for higher levels and ways to save where they’re at so that they don’t have to start from scratch every time.

    Let me know if there is a way to have you visit. It sounds like a great opportunity. Talk to you soon,

  2. I am a 5th Grade Teacher at Fammatre Elementary Charter School in San Jose, CA. I would be interested in having my class test out Motion Math. I have played around with it on my iPad and it looks pretty good, but would love to put it in the hands of the kids to see what they think.

  3. I am currently teaching 2nd grade in the Cupertino Union School District. We’d be interested in having you come out to show us some of your new games. Please let me know if you’d like to schedule something before the end of the school year.

    Best, Grace

  4. Thank you Alisha, Jacqueline, and Grace – we look forward to visiting your classrooms in the coming weeks. Nothing more humbling than showing a prototype to an eight-year-old!

  5. I teach 3rd grade in Dublin, Ca. My students have 3-4 iPads in class along with a class set of Nooks. They are “technology experts!” I would love the opportunity to challenge my students more!

  6. I teach middle school math at Cupertino Middle School in Sunnyvale, CA. I’m always looking for engaging games and activities for my remedial learners. I’m talking about students who score basic to far below basic in mathematics and often lack solid number sense. If you are interested in testing games in with students who have historically struggled in math, let me know!

  7. I teach 4th grade at Trinity School in Menlo Park CA. I would love to have you come and demo your games with our students. I just got Motion Math and can’t wait for my students to try it after this long weekend!

  8. I teach 2nd grade at Belle Haven in Menlo Park, CA (part of Ravenswood City School District). We have one ipod touch per student in my class and we would love to test any games that are at our grade level! (We also have a few iPads to test with too.)

  9. Hi,
    I’m a 5th and 6th grade teacher in Hayward, CA (and a fellow iPad developer) and I would like to participate in your field tests. I just downloaded Motion Math and will try that out with my students soon. Only a few have iPod touches, but that will soon change.
