About Us


UQLife is a connected games platform that brings together players, families and coaches for learning, support, and encouragement.

We Learn Best Through An inspired personal, connected circle of support that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

Imagine the impact of a support network of school, families and other important influencers, such as tutors and experts, that are completely connected—collaborating and coaching via technology, in encouraging one individual. UQ Life offers real-time personalized guidance and teamwork in reaching targeted learning goals. We don't just teach curriculum -- We give you tools to discover your own talents and how you learn best.

The name UQ comes from IQ, as in ‘intelligence quotient” but the U in the UQ stands for the individual person as in “you”. Fun learning for life = UQ Life.

Starting with the Kids

The mission of UQLife Kids is to change how kids interact with games and technology to get the next generation of brains off to a better start.

Why start with Kids?

Because those early years set up the foundation for success later in life. Thanks to nueroplasticity - the brain's ability to adapt and change over time - we can learn new things or change habits even throughout our golden years.

Still, those early years matter. A lot. In fact, 90% of a child's brain develops in the first 5 years of life. A number of factors influence early brain development including daily experiences.

Why learn with games and technology?

Children are engaging with mobile games and devices at an earlier age than ever.

According to a study conducted by the Kaiser Family foundation, children, on average, spend over 7.5 hours per day using mobile and technology devices.

UQLife’s proprietary technology seeks to provide families with a way to turn that problem into an opportunity for advancement, self-discovery, and healthy child development.

If you are interested in leveraging our technology for a particular healthy age group or even clinical population, please contact us at partners@uqlife.com
