ThinkZone a Finalist in Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Challenge

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Thinkzone Games is excited to announce that we are finalists in the Reach Higher Career App Challenge. The challenge, sponsored by Luminosity Labs and the U.S. Department of Education, is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative. The Challenge launched last October, calling for new mobile technologies to help students navigate education and career pathways.

Our app (currently still in production), Hats & Ladders, is a game-based app that supports middle and high school career exploration with swipe-to-choose self-assessments, connected activities, and mini-challenges. Hats & Ladders provides repeat exposure to a broad spectrum of careers and enables students to draw connections between their personal attributes and multiple pathways to career success. Once the product is complete, we will post additional details on our blog, so be sure to subscribe to our news via RSS.
