iTwixie proudly announces a special partnership with GenevaMars. Introducing Zachy the Robot – a terrific app for tweens who babysit and are looking for a fun, educational and cool way to entertain the kids they’re watching!

Zachy the Robot is an interactive learning game that teaches kids about science, engineering, math, and technology. That’s why everyone at iTwixie is so excited about this partnership! It’s all about STEM, which is a huge priority for iTwixie. Since, the app was specially designed for kids 3-7 years old, Zachy the Robot is featured in the Babysitter’s Corner of iTwixie, a special hangout on iTwixie where girls share babysitting tips. iTwixie is excited about giving away a few copies of the app this week, as part of a random drawing for girls who send in stories about how they can use Zachy the Robot while babysitting.

iTwixie and GenevaMars share many of the same empowering, kid-centered values, which makes this partnership extra special. Please join us in celebrating STEM and kids, a spread the word about iTwixie and GenevaMars!

iTwixie is proud to announce its media sponsorship of the 2012 USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C.

The mission of the festival is to re-invigorate interest of our nation’s youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational and entertaining science festival in the United States. iTwixie recognizes the opportunity to keep girls interested in STEM through the tween years, by creating a bond between tweens and cool, fun and fascinating STEM initiatives. We will help the festival spread their empowering message and invite families to join us at the festival, for this celebration of science, being smart and being TWEEN.

iTwixie has always been dedicated to STEM education initiatives and provides weekly educational content in “iThink.” We believe it’s important to partner with like minded organizations to keep tweens excited about learning and staying smart. The festival is an amazing event that showcases the best careers and projects from around the globe… STEM is cool.

iTwixie will be promoting the event in bi-weekly articles on iTwixie.com to shine a light on amazing discoveries, companies and entertainment you can find at the festival.

In addition to promoting the event on iTwixie we will be attending the festival in April. The festival is FREE! So be sure to visit if you are in the area and say hello!
