Minilab is a digital production company based in London that develops creative and educational apps for children to explore, play and enjoy.
Our principal charge is to try to answer the question that many parents and educators have been asking themselves over the last few years as mobile devices have rapidly transformed our world:
How can we make screen time matter?
How do we remove the stigma attached to the use of devices by children for learning and creativity?
We saw a gap for more rich, beautifully designed applications that immerse children into their own learning experiences, to equally be explored in traditional educational contexts and enjoyed at home.
Minilab seeks to answer the screen time question with a suite of products that engage children with everything from the natural world, to literature, design and art, astrophysics, engineering and maths. All of this delivered with graphics created by award-winning illustrators, expert sound and game design and the invaluable expertise and consultation of educational specialists, academics and most importantly children.
