PBS KIDS Launches Kart Kingdom

PBS KIDS has announced the launch of Kart Kingdom. The game also helps children build collaboration skills as they work together to create gadgets and unlock rewards for the entire Kart Kingdom community. In another first, PBS KIDS' Kart Kingdom features a new junior edition of E-line Media's Gamestar Mechanic, which allows kids to create, play and share their own digital games. PBS stations will bring Kart Kingdom into the community with live game events across the US starting this spring. As kids navigate Kart Kingdom, they complete quests in their customized karts, gathering resources along the way that enable them to craft gadgets that help them further explore the world. Throughout the experience, players collaborate to craft new items for their avatars and karts and to complete community events that unlock new rewards for all participants. As part of the adventure, kids can also play games with characters from their favorite PBS KIDS series, including WILD KRATTS and THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! With Kart Kingdom's Gamestar Mechanic Jr. game, young learners have the chance to create their own video games, which other kids can play. Designed to help kids build systems thinking skills, the station events will feature live games that kids can play together and that can be customized for each local community. Kart Kingdom is currently available as a browser-based game and will be available for iPad and Android tablets this summer.
