Osmo Schools

Top educators from over 2000 schools nationwide, including the Bay Area’s best preparatory institutions, are raving about Osmo’s natural ability to foster creative, social, and emotional learning – and how much their students love it.

Designed With Care

Osmo was invented by young parents out of Stanford and Google. Engineers at heart, the founders are personally committed to innovating new technologies that nurture positive play experiences for kids.

Osmo in the Media

…once again, Osmo has built something wonderfully creative and interactive.

The basic tool elementary students use to learn math hasn’t changed since the advent of the Xerox machine. The makers of Osmo think with this new game, they can change that.

Osmo Numbers Takes The Fear Out Of Figures

Osmo, a combination of iPad accessories and software, is meant to break the zombie-like stares and bring more of the real world back into the mix, by providing games that interact with just about any physical object—pen, paper, blocks, even toys your kids already own.

This interplay between the physical and digital realms looks and feels like magic.

It’s the parental lament that just grows louder as kids spend more time glued to a screen: “Why can’t you play with real toys for a change?” Now the kids can, without having to give up the digital devices they’re so fond of, thanks to Tangible Play’s Osmo.
