Company Overview

Apollo EduTech is an unplugged computer science educational gaming company.  We are founded by two software developers and a Stanford graduate whom were looking for ways to spark a passion in computer science in their kids.

We are on a mission to “Teach the world to code through educational gaming.”  Why code?  We feel this is the currency of the future and critical to children’s future success.  Why gaming?  We know that children learn by playing and playing is the best way to learn.  So making sure our product is fun and that kids use play based learning is the best way to ensure success.

Our first product, Unicorn Ninjas is a fast paced coding card game that teaches HTML terminology, website design, pattern recognition, arithmetic, and so much more.  It is played by 2 to 4 players, ages 5 and up.  Players use Element cards to build Websites, while bluffing, bugging and debugging their way to victory!

Problem Overview

  1. Learning computer science is one of the most explosive growth areas in education
  2. There has a been a movement to unplugged education as parents and researchers began discovering that too much screen time, especially for young kids could have negative effects. The pandemic has only exacerbated the situation as kids have gone to online learning.  Parents and educators we talk to are desperate for products and solutions that can teach children without adding to the already high levels of screen time.
  3. There is a lack of easy-to-learn and easy-to-teach materials to help spark computer science interest in kids without resorting to additional screen time or electronic devices

Solution Overview

Unicorn Ninjas is a fast paced coding card game that teaches HTML terminology, website design, pattern recognition, arithmetic, and so much more.  It is played by 2 to 4 players, ages 5 and up.  Players use Element cards to build Websites, while bluffing, bugging and debugging their way to victory!At its core, Unicorn Ninjas is a matching game.  Players assemble various Elements to create Web pages, similar to how you would assemble Legos.  We also introduce HCI or Human Computer Interactions as hints that teaches kids and students how we interact with the elements of a website.Increased challenges and fun are introduced through additional Bugging and Bluffing game mechanics for more advanced players.  Each game includes an HTML primer and Instructions booklet.
