Restless Kids at Home? Teach Them About COVID-19 With This FREE Humorous Quiz
Singapore edtech startup Yumcha Studios has launched a COVID multilingual quiz just for children in a bid to teach educate them on fighting coronavirus.
With schools closed and kids forced to stay at home, they may not fully understand the extent of the current COVID-19 situation. As more parents are seeking virtual classes to keep their children educated, apps are constantly adding features to accommodate this lifestyle change.
While there are various edutainment apps that focus on the daily subjects, Singapore edtech startup Yumcha Studios has launched a COVID-specific free multilingual quiz just for children in a bid to teach educate them on fighting coronavirus.
Using humour to promote learning
The quiz, titled "10 WAYS KIDS CAN FIGHT THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS", was created with a collaborative effort with teachers and educational organisations from different countries - it is available in English, Malay as well as Chinese, among other languages.
Each question features a Yumcha Studio character and uses adorable humour to ensure children keep engaged with the questions.
“We really wanted to impress upon kids the importance of not just things like good hygiene practices and social distancing, but also values like rejecting bigotry.
"Humour just makes things more engaging and memorable", said Dr. Woo Yen Yen, CEO and co-founder of Yumcha Studios.
