Angry Birds Playground: Rovio catapults gaming into the classroom

“Rovio, creator of Angry Birds, has worked with the likes of National Geographic, NASA and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) on science-related books and educational materials around past Angry Birds games, but now it's launching something more ambitious called Angry Birds Playground.

Developed in partnership with the University of Helsinki and based on the Finnish national curriculum, it's an educational programme covering maths, science, music, language, arts and crafts, physical education and social interaction.
