The world is changing fast. It’s very clear that kids these days will need skills like confidence, curiosity, and perseverance to succeed, because they will need to be lifelong learners.
Using science to make kids smarter
We are inspired by research on growth mindset and neuroplasticity. Kids who understand that their brain is malleable and that they have the power to make it stronger every day are more confident, curious, and persistent and they do better in school. The earlier that kids are given this knowledge, the larger the impact it has on their school performance. And in the long term, these character traits are better predictors of success than IQ.
Making learning about the brain fun
Working alongside experts in neuroscience and games-based learning, we use interactive gameplay, characters, and stories to make the brain come alive for kids. Our apps use a playful brain world inhabited by characters that represent functions of the brain and traits like confidence, curiosity, and perseverance so that kids can learn about brain growth in a playful way.
