As one of the difficult and longest-feeling years of many of our lives has come to a close, I wanted to take a moment to reflect. This year has brought a number of unique challenges for us, even as an ed-tech product, since teachers and administrators have been so overwhelmed figuring out how to safely deliver instruction. We looked for ways we could help: how could we make delivering engaging science instruction easier for teachers? How can we help engage students in a lonely time? How can we be agents of change around race and supporting BIPOC students?
I’m really proud of the opportunities we found to support teachers and students, and what our team was able to accomplish this year:
