Growing up, I loved school. The books, studying, and projects were are very intriguing to me. I could spend hours with my head in a book. Looking at my kids’ school work, I scratch my head. My kids have no science book, social studies book, etc. Everything is online or a video or something not tangible. While I struggle with this scenario, my kids are fully engaged and more importantly they are learning a lot. Since the kids are so engaged, I am always searching for new ways to keep them stimulated. Blue Apprentice by Galaxyz is the perfect solution.

Blue Apprentice by Galaxyz is an online learning experience. Based on the Next Generation Science Standards curriculum, this online game and app supplements the topics that they learn in school. By making science topics engaging, fun and interactive, Blue Apprentice seeks to create a lifelong interest in science topics. 

Broken in several episodes, Blue Apprentice Season 1 offers a variety of science topics. From physics to Earth to life science, the interactive learning experiences solidify the science topics. Kids, and even adults, will learn about properties of matter, ecosystems and habitats, food website and ecosystem dynamics, types of energy, and energy storage and transfer. Since the learning is based in a game like format, the kids want to continue to the next level, which encourages their learning.

The game is simple and easy for kids to follow. Blue Apprentice is recommended for ages 6-12. The game is available both via app format and online. Kids can learn at home from a laptop or on the go with their smart device.
Working with an alien scientist, kids work to outsmart the enemy King Dullard’s minions through science concepts. With a customized character, kids feel invested in the mission’s success. These lessons put aside boring memorization. Instead, kids put their knowledge to use in each mission.

From the table of periodic elements to eco-system balance, science topics lead them through an adventure of discovery. 

As a mom of a fifth and sixth grader, Blue Apprentice has helped to re-enforce their scientific classroom knowledge. From understanding the depth of an eco-system to exploring space, the kids ask to play this educational based game (just like they ask to play the Xbox). Since each mission is an adventure, they want to unlock more content and, in turn, re-enforce the science concepts.

bObsweep Pet Hair Plus, cleaning my floors with minimal effort



I have a confession. I hate cleaning my floors. It is an endless cycle. My kids spill food. My kids track in dirt. My floors always seem dirty. Without that extra 25th hour of the day, I can’t find the time to continuously clean the floors. I have been given the ultimate solution – bObsweep Pet Hair Plus. With bObsweep Pet Hair Plus, my floors are clean and I have time to spare. 

bObSweep Pet Hair Plus is the floor cleaning solution for families. From carpets to tile to hardwood floors, bObsweep gets the floor clean without effort on my part. From quick clean to deep clean, bObsweep gets it done. 

In our house, the mornings are chaotic. From breakfast to packing up for the day, I think that a Tasmanian devil moves at a slower pace. With the frantic pace, items are dropped, spilled, etc. Now with the bObsweep, I don’t have to add 15 minutes into my morning for floor clean-up. Before we leave, the kitchen chairs get moved on top of the table and bObsweep goes to work. From the eat-in kitchen to family room, all the floors are cleaned by lunchtime. 

The new Pet Hair Plus versus offers a longer lasting battery. For the busy family, the battery life means that this robotic vacuum works smarter not harder. The vacuum covers more cleaning surface area with less downtime. Plus, the bObsweep knows to return to its charging station when it’s done. It’s like going to take a recharging nap after a long, tiring day. 


Even with our busy lifestyle, the kids do have chores. Vacuuming and washing the floor is never a popular chore. But with bObsweep, both kids jump at the chance to vacuum and clean. The bObsweep pet hair plus has a remote which can control its movements. From vacuuming around the sofa to vacuuming under the bed, the chore is at the top of their to-do list. 

Since bObsweep vacuums and mops, this one robotic system can handle all the floor cleaning in the house. The wet floor attachment cleans dirt and grime from the tile floors. With water or cleaner, the microfiber pad scrubs away all the tracked in, caked on dirt. Our family doesn’t need a bucket and mop to clean the bathrooms any more. 

The bObsweep is my clean floor solution. From deep clean to quick clean to daily cleaning, this robotic cleaning system has answered my problems. How will bObsweep help you?
