Comprised of game developers and education experts, Mango is looking to raise at least $100,000 through crowd funding.
Mango will use funds from the Kickstarter campaign to create “the first set of curriculum-based Mango Math games” leveraging “the very best of both Eastern and Western teaching methods”.
