My Take
I really liked all of the scenarios, and I also liked that kids are encouraged to go through the stories making different choices. We ran into tech issues, however. We had problems running it in Chrome, and had to adjust setting (which was a learning experience in itself.) Also, progress was lost and the little certificate that shows progress often disappears.
