Osmo is getting into a whole new game.
The award-winning STEAM educational brand has entered into a multiyear partnership with Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union. Under the new deal, the maker of educational games for kids ages 3-10 and up will merge sports and learning in a program built around three main community platforms.
“We’re really thrilled by the intersection of sports and STEAM learning, and we see lots of young athletes being equally motivated and inspired by technology, math, and computer science, like my son, for example,” says Osmo Founder and CEO Pramod Sharma. “He loves to play soccer, as much as he loves digital learning. Kids demonstrate great aptitude for learning both inside and outside the classroom.”
The three platforms that the partnership will focus on are:
- Osmo Cares: A charitable program in which the Union and Osmo will identify a local nonprofit and provide complimentary Osmo kits and tablets.
- Osmo Kids Club Membership: As an official sponsor of the Union Kids Club, Osmo will provide exclusive kits and content to members.
- Osmo Off-Day: A program that will select a “no school” day to invite a large group of kids to Subaru Park for a day of fun and learning.
“At the Union, enriching young minds doesn’t stop when they step off the field or leave Subaru Park, it is equally important that we provide resources to continue learning when at school, or at home, to our young players and fans,” says Philadelphia Union President Tim McDermott. “Personally, I have seen how Osmo products can educate in a fun, engaging way with my own children and look forward to bringing that to our community.”
