The Mindblown Labs Mission
We use both gaming principles and non-traditional marketing techniques to inspire kids to learn and empower them to transform that learning into life skills. We believe that learning should have the following characteristics:
Inspired - kids learn because they want to not because they have to
Communal - kids learn from everyone around them and in turn teach others)
Omnipresent - kids learn everywhere. That's why we're mobile!
Actionable - kids transform learning into real-life skills
We're working on the Mindblown Economy (ME) a mobile social game where teens learn about money by role-playing twenty-somethings. As they explore fantasies of their future selves they constantly making trade-offs. This isn't your typical educational game. It's actually fun, because the player's enjoyment comes first.
Our team is made up people who are extremely skilled in within their functional areas but also very passionate about using their skills to transform the face of education in this country. Our team currently consists of a game designer, an artist and general business guy/producer.
Life at Mindblown Labs
We work in one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Like SF we're laidback but there's always an electric buzz whenever we meet to create something new.
