eduActiv8 (formerly pySioGame) is a free cross-platform Open Source educational program for children.
The program currently consists of over 100 short educational activities ranging from sets of flashcards presenting new knowledge as well as “simulation” activities where kids can experiment with variables and see how things change to better understand a concept, to good old drill activities in a form of interactive worksheets to allow the practice of newly attained skills by manually moving things around the screen.
eduActiv8 is suitable for children in primary school but can be easily used before that with some guidance from parents/teachers. Currently, the activities within the program mainly focus on basic concepts of maths (learning numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, time and much more) but also there are some language exercises (alphabet and some word activities) and general logic games and memory training exercises, puzzles, colour games, etc.
The program is running on Windows™, MacOS™, and Linux.
