SkyTime is a free and open source educational game created for the XO laptops of the United Nation's One Laptop per Child mission. SkyTime teaches children to tell time on analog clocks.
 
SkyTime started as a student project at RIT, but quickly grew into something bigger and was continued for several years. I was invited to attend the White House Champions of Change Event for my work on this game.
 
I conducted many playtesting sessions with students of a wide range of ages and skill levels. It resonated with students grades K-2. Children who have difficulty reading analog clocks found SkyTime very immersive. In fact, the team received complaints from several parents because they were having trouble pulling their kids away from the game. 
SkyTime has been translated into multiple languages.
