Noggin, producer of commercial-free kids programming on TV and online, along with Bottle Rocket, New York, a wholly owned subsidiary of ACTV, are launching Skengle 2.0, an interactive polling game, at noggin.com
. The online game brings two aliens to Earth looking for "food" via kids' opinions, teaching kids math and analytical skills along the way. The game also provides a forum for kids to express their opinions. A companion piece, The Poll Catcher, asks kids to poll friends and family and upload their results onto Skengle. The data are pooled and presented as a bar graph. Noggin is a collaboration between Nickelodeon and Sesame Workshop.
