Official Press Release via Ultra PRO Playroom:
When the pandemic hit and schools went virtual last year, learning loss rose to the forefront of everyone’s mind. Ultra PRO Playroom has a fun and exciting way for kids to make up some of the educational deficits that have resulted from COVID with their latest offering, Burger Academy. A learning game that combines the playfulness of hamburger building with STEM-oriented coding curiosity, Burger Academy is an ideal way for parents to encourage education at play time. The game showcases why Ultra PRO Playroom has been the recipient of several recent awards, including the National Parenting Product Award (NAPPA), the Mom’s Choice Award and the Academics’ Choice Award.
According to a November 2020 ToyNews report), the “surge in demand for STEM toys and science kits will continue well into 2021.” In fact, by including STEM games in the daily schedule, parents may even “help their children catch up on terms of missed education” resulting from at-home learning.
Ultra PRO Playroom’s newest learning game for kids, Burger Academy, combines the educational boost concerned parents are seeking with the fun and excitement kids will love. As part of the game play, players compete to see who can plan out their burger-building movements in the fewest moves, thus developing the critical thinking skills that are beneficial to future coding opportunities. The object of Burger Academy is to flip the burger to match the image a player is given.
Featuring foam burger parts as game pieces, Burger Academy is a toy and educational game bundled in one. It contains 19 burger parts, 50 burger bid cards to up the challenge and 40 French fry cards. Playable by one to six players in just 20 minutes, Burger Academy sparks children’s imagination and scientific curiosity. Designed for players ages eight and up, Burger Academy is a perfect way to tear kids away from the screen or to liven up family game night.
Burger Academy has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $15.
