The Zoombinis, as it turns out, were the stars of a series of educational computer games in the 90s, beginning with Logical Journey of the Zoombinis. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, they’ve returned in a brand new logic game for iOS and Android that has the much simpler name Zoombinis.
A product of the not-for-profit organization TERC, FableVision Studios and Learning Games Network, Zoombinis centers on hundreds of small blue creatures who have been imprisoned by the evil Bloats and need your help to return to their home (called Zoombiniville, naturally). Successfully doing so will require the same skills that made the original games popular with educators including logic, data analysis, pattern finding and problem solving skills.It’s all set in fun-sounding locales like Pizza Pass, Titanic Tattooed Toads and Mudball Wall with the production values one would expect from a modern mobile game.
“Together we have recreated the Zoombinis adventure so that it can be shared with a whole new generation, in a touch screen format,” David Libby, TERC’s Director of Technology, said in a press release. “Zoombinis now has a more modern look and added gameplay refinements, complete with the timeless logic puzzles that children and adults first came to love in the ’90s.”
But how much educational value does it have? The National Science Foundation seems to think it has plenty, recently awarding a $1.9 million, multi-year grant to TERC’s Educational Gaming Environment Group to study how Zoombinis can help develop computational thinking and how those lessons might be transferable to classroom settings.Of the 28 analysts who cover Zoom Video, 15 have buy or overweight ratings, 11 have hold ratings and two have sell or underweight ratings, with an average price target of $415.40, according to FactSet data.
