Enuma: We design accessible games and applications that help all children
learn independently

Kitkit School was created by a special project team of Enuma that has decades of collective experience in education, gaming, engineering, design, and international development.

About Enuma

In 2012, Enuma was cofounded in Berkeley, California by two world-class engineer and game designer parents whose inspiration was their son, who was born with special needs. Since then, the Enuma team has grown, with offices currently in Berkeley, Seoul and Beijing.

Accomplishments

Enuma’s unique design approach, grounded on its mission to support struggling learners and those with special needs, merges instructional methods that cater to the diversity among learners with lessons from both the gaming industry and the education sector. We have built several award-winning and successful children’s applications.

Our flagship product, Todo Math, launched in 2014, and is the first comprehensive mobile math-learning application designed for children ages 3 – 8. It incorporates Universal Design for Learning principals and game elements that enable young learners to practice math independently and with confidence. The name “Todo” comes from the Spanish word that means “all,” which symbolizes Enuma’s commitment to all students.
