The Education Games Network team has been creating outstanding children’s content for almost a decade in companies like BBC, CBeebies, and HarperCollins. We’ve long understood how kids engage with educational content in and out of the classroom, and we’re now excited about creating exciting new way for kids to learn.
Our game development team includes award-winning artists, illustrators, animators, and experienced game designers from companies like Electronic Arts, Playfish and BBCJam.
Each EGN team member is CRB checked to work with children.
Education Games Network is now transitioning to a new, bigger, brighter super-charged education and gaming team -led but some of the best brains in the business!
(We'll lift the lid on the crack commando team shortly - stay tuned for more great exciting products and tech!)
