With September just around the corner, we’ve heard from lots of schools, teachers, and parents around they world. They’re all excited about offering new learning experiences with the Leap Motion Controller. Many schools have ordered Leap Motion Controllers for their classrooms, and parents at home have been exploring educational apps with their kids of all ages.

In the spirit of learning as students head back to school, we’re putting out the call for you to share pictures and videos of your kids using the Leap Motion Controller. We’re gathering great stories to tell, and hope you’ll be a part of it. Please submit your stories, pictures and videos here.

This week, we’re also sharing a 5-part series of posts that feature a wide variety of educational titles available in Airspace. They’re great for everyone from small children to older students and lifelong learners. To kick things off, we know the best learning experiences are the ones you can share with your little ones. Here are a couple of apps that are fun and easy for younger learners.

  • Explore animal sounds, practice counting, and play the piano with this simple game.
  • Work on hand-eye coordination as your hand moves through 3D space.

Come back tomorrow for another installment of education-centric apps, and let us know what you think about Curious Kids and Caterpillar Count. Over the course of this week, we’ll feature everything from globetrotting and music to science and creative thinking.
