Story of Us

While visiting old friends in Bangladesh, Derek Stumfall was asked by the children to bring back souvenirs from an upcoming trip to Australia.  He did.  And as he watched their eyes light up when they realized the world in which they live is bigger than the place where they live, the GeoWhiz idea was born.

How to bring the idea to life?  Should it be a board game?  A television show?  No.

It soon became clear the best way to engage kids was with fun, entertaining, and educational virtual worlds and video games.  Our COPPA compliant GeoWhiz was introduced to families in 2014.  Shortly thereafter, we began building custom theme-based worlds for our enterprise clients as a way for them to connect to kids.
