Do your kids love Roblox as much as mine do? Seriously. My older kids are allowed one hour of screen time per day, and they continually choose to spend their time engrossed in various worlds in this pixilated universe. When I heard this amazing company, BRAINIKA, figured out how to make Roblox educational, I immediately wanted to know more.
BRAINIKA: Math Games on Roblox
BRAINIKA was started by a mom who grew frustrated trying to get her child to practice math facts during quarantine. Does that sound familiar to anyone else, or just me? Her child has ADHD, and she saw that he focused easily while playing Roblox. This resonated with me to my core, because two out of my three children have ADHD. I know first hand how easily it is for them to hyper focus on video games such as Roblox. Computer games are so incredibly stimulating to the ADHD brain. They encourage creative problem solving, which is a strength for those with ADHD.
BRAINIKA has taken the love children have for Roblox and paired it with educational math games. These games are geared towards kindergarteners through second graders. BRAINIKA creates various worlds within Roblox. Children must answer math facts to advance to the next level and complete the game. The game includes over three hundred adventures and over one thousand tasks, so there is always something new and exciting for your child to explore. Of course, kids do not need to be neuro-divergent to benefit from BRAINIKA. My non-ADHD child loves it all the same. They ask to play “math Roblox” during our homeschool almost daily, and I never feel guilty for saying yes. I know they are mastering math facts that otherwise would be relegated to boring flash cards.
What Do My Kids Think?
My school aged kids ask to play BRAINIKA daily. I asked them what their favorite part of these math games was, and here is what they had to say. My first grader said that she loves to climb the very high tree in Level 2. You earn coins by climbing the tree, and then you can spend coins on various things. My third grader said she loves the mazes and the obby (a jumping challenge common in Roblox games). They love the pet that rides on their character’s shoulder. When you enter the game, the pet is an Angry Bird, however you can use coins to purchase different pets to accompany your character on their adventure. BRAINIKA has 30-day challenges. At the end of the 30 days, kids earn 400 Robux. This is a very exciting prize, because kids use Robux to purchase a slew of different things in the Roblox universe. My favorite part of BRAINIKA is that I can log on to their website and access progress reports to see how my kids are doing. This helps me know if there is anything particular that we need to practice further.

This is awesome! As an elementary teacher, I know how into Roblox kids are these days. I will be saving this so that I can reach out to see about getting my students using this!
I do glad! I know your class will love this.
This looks like an awesome way to have the kids play AND learn! Love it! Sounds like it really helped your kids in many ways. Great to know!
My 9 yr old loves Guardians of Mathmatica which is just a website though.
I’m going to have to look into these. Always looking for ways to help my son with math, but yet fun.
I hope he enjoys it!
Such a great idea. Using video games for learning. Video games get such a bad name because they are misunderstood. But video games are the future to for those that cannot learn with traditional methods.
I totally agree!
I can’t wait to share this with the older siblings in my preschool class who keep telling me about all their Roblox gift cards they have lol. Great to see educational games
