THE NEXT CLASS: On May 20, co.lab announced the latest round of companies for its accelerator. Co-founded by Zynga and the NewSchools Venture Fund, co.lab has graduated 19 educational game startups so far, including Edmodo, Motion Math, and Kiko Labs. The lucky six in the fourth cohort are:

  • Pixel Press, a “build your own video game” platform which integrates physical and digital play
  • Codespark, whose product The Foos builds games for kids 5+ around computer science
  • Lab4U, a platform enabling hands-on lab experiences for web and mobile devices
  • LearnFresh, the developer of NBA Math Hoops, a basketball board game and mobile app teaching math skills through the statistics of NBA and WNBA players
  • Story Toys, which develops interactive books and games

With participation in the accelerator, the six companies will each receive $50K in funding, as well as advising from mentors at co.lab and Zynga, and access to demo in schools.
