GET QURIOUS Review
The GET QURIOUS Explorer Box is space themed with a title of Blast Off to Space in a Colorful 3D Universe. It includes 16 double-sided cards, 4 role-playing masks, 2 double-sided treasure hunt mats. You will also need to download the free augmented reality app from the App Store.
As your child uses the contents of the kit with the app, they will learn more about the adventures of Manu and his friends. They will build a story by scanning 5 cards from the colorful side of the 16-card deck. They’ll read along (or listen to) the story. It will change every time different cards are used.
Your child will wear the different masks and look at the game to scan the image. Then they will act out different parts in the story while recording their own voice. I love the way this encourages not only creative play but encourages a passion for video creation.
Using the same cards used above (but with the back side), your child can build a spaceship. Once the spaceship has been built, they can play a game that involves aiming and shooting asteroids to collect treasures. And, by scanning the double-sided mats, your child can go on an animated 3D treasure hunt to collect treasures.
I really love the way that this kit combines physical items like masks, cards, and placemats with an app on a smart device. It really is the best of both worlds because it combines hands-on physical play with technology. If you’re looking for a fun way to encourage STEM learning, this is it.
