This advanced 3D expansion to the classic competitive table-top learning game will take you to the next dimension of challenge. With the accompanying physical blocks that must be purchased from blocksrock.com (each player needs a complete set), the app enables players to build complex and fun patterns that will make their brains light up! By merging the physical with the digital, Blocks Rock has entered a whole new world of learning possibilities.
Accuracy is key, and a player only wins the round when the structure is completed successfully. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!
Play solo, one-on-one, or in teams. Advanced functionality allows for users to connect multiple devices and for teachers to play the role of judge.
In 2016, researchers of the Indiana University Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences conducted a comprehensive study that showed Blocks Rock! to be highly beneficial to STEM learning. This study corroborates with past research that structured block play needs to be a part of every young student's classroom experience. By playing block-building games like Blocks Rock!, students will develop greater spatial reasoning abilities.
Students with greater spatial reasoning abilities will have a higher likelihood of furthering their education and developing future careers in STEM, a field that the United States so desperately needs to improve.
Blocks Rock! can help with color identification, shape identification, hand-eye coordination, math skills, and spatial skills.
