“I was looking for a way to put programming into practice and Ylands EDU found me. Quite by chance, at the “Computer in School” conference, I visited a group of enthusiasts who gave me an educational version of a popular game. My enthusiasm was met with great response from the 8th and 9th grade students. The end of the school year has already been marked by discoveries, programming, debugging and, above all, gaming. According to the participant: “Now I’m doing something real.” presented by Martina Caslavova, a teacher at the Jungmann Gardens Melnik primary school.

“The first signals from teachers that they would like to use Ylands as a teaching tool appeared several years ago when we presented our game abroad at game fairs such as the American Pax or the German Gamescom. We thought about this for a long time and drew up a market map. When a year and a half ago we started touring schools with the first prototype and interest groups, we realized that we had in our hands a product that was original in many respects, and the interest in it exceeded our expectations,” he adds. Ales Ulm, Ylands project manager at Bohemia Interactive.

Ylands EDU is now available to Czech teachers via the Microsoft Store for the Windows operating system.
