ZyroMath City Count is an integrated switch-accessible runner-game for young children and children with special needs that keeps kids math motivated. Kids can test their reflexes as their robot Zyro races through the city, collecting stars and power-ups that give them special powers. Kids just touch to jump and avoid obstacles, and can use their math points to buy super-power characters and prizes in the ZyroStore.

The key feature that this game caters also to children with special needs is equally important because there are not that many kind of games for them out there.

So! Children love running games. Anything that moves in color they appreciate it a lot. However, ZyroMath also has some educational parts in it. Children can learn to count up to 100 by ones and tens. The game is linked to math standards so you can use its game play to reinforce Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals.

ZyroMath City Count incorporates a drill and practice mode to provide a fun, engaging and effective way to learn through repetition as well as a challenge test mode to assess learning.

A Beginner, Advanced and Expert mode is available to provide easy options based on the motor skill level or cognitive skill level of the child and the game supports multiple user profiles which I believe is a must these days so users won’t have the hassle experience on having to logout and login again just to play using their profile.

They also have a customizable learning mode than can learn optimal game settings to personalize settings to the needs of the child as well as the option for graphics and music to be graded to make the game suitable for sensory sensitive kids. Its one-touch input helps improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills for children.

A quickly growing field that demands high-level knowledge and advanced creativity, robotics is rapidly staking its claim around the world. Several cities across the globe are well-known for being top locations for robotics professionals. Here are six cities on the cutting edge of robotics.

San Jose, California

Because it is at the center of Silicon Valley, it should come as no surprise that San Jose is one of the best places to live for innovators in the field of robotics. Experts in the field tend to obtain degrees at schools like San Jose State University or Stanford University and work for a range of tech-centered companies in the San Jose area. Companies like Google pioneer groundbreaking projects like healthcare-focused robot surgery and cloud-based control over robot armies.

Tokyo, Japan

Always at the front of the pack when it comes to new technology, Tokyo is also a top pick for robotics professionals. Much of the tech here focuses on human-robot interaction, and annual exhibitions demonstrate advances in robot nursing, mobility, and artificial intelligence. The technology is so popular here that it has invaded everyday life. Robot enthusiasts can even dine at robot restaurants or view robot cabaret performances in Tokyo.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The famous Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute is headquartered in Pittsburgh and has drastically improved the employment outlook in this Rust Belt city. Several robotics-focused companies have popped up around this educational center, and Pittsburgh-based robotics engineers work on innovative projects like self-driving cars.

Boston, Massachusetts

Thanks to this city’s high-level science and engineering programs, Boston is a mecca for robotics experts. Graduate programs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology produce specialists in everything from locomotion to intelligence to marine functions. Now home to over 100 robotics companies, the Boston area is responsible for a range of new technology, from military drones to robots that scan ocean floors to bots that work on assembly lines.

Munich, Germany

Also a center for high-level robotics education, this city is home to the Technische Universität München, or the Technical University of Munich. Numerous engineers study here to become fluent in the intersection of robotics, cognition, and intelligence. Graduates of this program often go on to work for the many robotics firms in Munich, which focus on design, engineering, and manufacturing. Robotics professionals will find a range of opportunities in Munich.

Huntsville, Alabama

Not every robotics hotspot is a sprawling metropolis. Huntsville, Alabama is a small city that boasts an impressive array of robotics jobs for professionals and educational opportunities for future experts. College students can join the NASA Robotics Academy, a competitive summer program that provides engineering students with intensive space-related experience. Those with degrees or technical expertise can pursue additional training or research at the Robotic Maintenance Training Center or the Advanced Technology Research and Development Center in Huntsville.

Once an emerging field, robotics is now poised to expand quickly in centers around the world. Settle into one of these six fast-moving cities, and you’ll be in the middle of the action.
