Star Dash Studios is a free runner game that challenges you to train as a runner on a film set and learn about numeracy and numbers by completing puzzles on the way.
In this running game, your character is the runner on a film set and has to complete a number of challenges to progress through the game, learn how to impress the director, and win promotion to a better job on set.
Star Dash Studios offers a creative, colourful and challenging chase around a movie studio where you have the chance to learn about numbers and mathematics and train yourself to improve your mental maths skills.
Numeracy is more than just knowing how to multiply figures, add sums and arithmetic, it’s about knowing the maths you need for everyday life. Playing games adds to the speed of learning new skills and aids mental development, and the challenges on the film set in Star Dash Studios help you in training your brain to solve numeracy problems and learn mathematics.
