New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles App Helps Teach STEM Concepts, Problem Solving and Critical Thinking

Naturally, seeing as the hubby and I grew up watching the Ninja Turtles as 80's babies, it only makes sense that we are all for our boys loving them just as much, if not more than we did at their age. Nickelodeon has launched its first app based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Half-Shell Heroes, a preschool and kid-friendly property inspired by the hit animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In the TMNT Half-Shell Heroes app, kids can join Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo on an action-filled quest through the sewers and streets of New York City. Boys and girls alike will surely love this new action packed app that will have them engaged in the educational games that helps teach STEM concepts, problem solving and critical thinking.The TMNT Half-Shell Heroes app is available now to download on all iOS devices, Google Play and Amazon

At first glance of the app, our almost 6 year old's eyes lit up as he said " wow, this is so cool." As a mom and former elementary and preschool educator i'm all for finding ways to incorporate learning while having fun and what better way for the lil' monsters to enjoy their screen time, right?  While playing the TMNT Half-Shell Heroes app, users can add award badges to their Ninja Stash by swiping and navigating their way through challenges including: sewers flooded by M.O.U.S.E.R.S; an attack by Footbots; and a city invasion by the Kraang.  Additionally, players can receive help from popular characters from the series like April, Splinter and Casey Jones, while continuing to master their Ninja Turtle skills in Splinter’s Dojo.
