Actress Uma Thurman Promotes Education Through Technology
Uma Thurman and Kuato Studios, a leading learning-through-games studio, launched two educational games on Thursday to a crowd of parents, children, and celebrities in the Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda at the American Museum of Natural History.
Golden Globe-winning actress and Hollywood royalty, Uma Thurman, entertained 300 parents and kids to kick off and celebrate the North American launch of Dino Tales and Safari Tales, educational video games designed to strengthen literacy, reasoning, and enquiry skills – in and beyond the classroom.
Children and parents were able to experience the games on interactive large screens throughout the museum – where dinosaurs and wildlife were brought to life.

“Having three children of my own, literacy is of the utmost importance to me in their education. I have seen just how much technology is progressing in this area and how it is becoming more and more important in their everyday lives,” said Uma of the partnership.
“I am really impressed by the work that Kuato Studios is doing. They are making innovative and exciting games that kids want to play and that I, as a parent, want them to play too. I am so happy to support and help spread this message in raising awareness for how technology can play a valuable role in the future of our children’s education.”
Kuato Studios North America has partnered with Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), a children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States.
Dino Tales and Safari Tales are available now on iOS and Android platforms at $3.99.
