Feedback

The children really enjoyed the active and competitive elements. It really spurred them on to want to work hard & get the right answers so they could help their team score more points.

— R. Tooms, England

I usually hate maths and find it really hard but this is awesome and so much fun

— Student, Australia

They were so exited to see kids from other countries participating and then it was interesting because as soon as I pressed play they were all completely engaged.

— T. Wenban, Australia

Everyone engaged and I saw students that had never really enaged in maths lessons in a very meaningful way showing their own interest.

— D. McGuiness, Ireland

We loved the exercises, fitness and mindfulness.
