About Ululab

Mission

Our mission is to offer video games that are fun and pedagogically sound. The games focus on learning content directly inspired by mathematics and science curriculums.

We believe we can show that video games can offer much more than they do right now. We believe games can help kids develop an interest in science and mathematics. This naturally leads to better perseverance and performances at school, but also in career opportunities.

The team received multiple awards and grants that reflect the trust various organisms had towards the team and the need for the project.
