Being an early stage EdTech startup means that we have a lot of learning to do, so we joined forces with community leaders, educators, scientists and technologists to pilot and develop our technology in K-12 classrooms and homes. We continue to focus on learning as much as we can about the education system and teacher's needs in order to ensure a great solution fit.
