Two Whats?! And A Wow! is now in TinkerClass!!!

I’m going to present you with three statements, but – and this is a BIG BUT- only one of these statements is a true WOW. The other two are a couple of made-up “WHATs?!”.

Which of the following statements is a true WOW? Is it…

  1. Guy and Mindy are leaving Wow in the World to start a true crime podcast. 
  2. TinkerClass costs $999/ month for teachers to use
  3. Two Whats?! And A Wow! has launched on TinkerClass! 

Let’s reveal the winning WOW!

You guessed it! Two Whats?! And A Wow! has launched on TinkerClass! Those other two statements are BONKERBALLS!  Two Whats?! And A Wow! (TWAAW)  is a science-based game show that turns learning into a game. Kids love TWAAW, and now your students can too! 

Why it WOWs with students!

TWAAW engages students by turning awe-mazing science facts into an exciting game show quiz. Students make an educated guess and test if their answer is right! Why does this matter? Studies show that classroom games can help students become more motivated to learn and participate. 

Additional research reveals that students learn better when they receive immediate feedback and are aware of their progress. In TWAAW, Guy and Mindy reveal the correct answer in a friendly and engaging way. So whether a student gets the answer right or wrong, they’re learning and having fun!

Why it WOWs with teachers!

TinkerClass episodes of TWAAW are short and sweet at about 3-5 minutes long, making them perfect for brain breaks, transitions, lesson introductions, or exit tickets. 

Want to take your learning to the next level? Make it happen with podjects [podcasts + projects]! Each set of mini-episodes of TWAAW will include a Guided and a Make-Your-Own (MYO) activity that you can do with your students. The Guided Activities dig deeper into the content of the episode, and the MYO Activity encourages kids to create their own playful version of the game.
