Knowledge Adventure School Group marketing director Dr. Kathryn Edwards said that parents and teachers have been asking for a home edition of HyperStudio for years. “With HyperStudio in place in more than 5,000 school districts across the nation, students can now take their school projects home to expand and polish, as well as create new multimedia masterpieces on their own,” said Edwards.

A copy of Morph Pro 2.5 is also included, which enables kids to transform and morph images.
