What is serious fun?

It’s research driven solutions for the most critical STEM learning needs. It’s engaging, entertaining experiences that teachers and students actually WANT to participate in. It’s how we make sure that everyone has the opportunity to succeed at STEM, as well as the chance to love it as much as we do. Serious fun is our not-so-secret sauce, and it has four main ingredients.

We are precisely focused on mission-critical STEM learning needs.

All STEM education is important. But some STEM skills and knowledge are more challenging to understand, more difficult to teach, or more foundational to future learning. Students who build these foundations can use them to succeed at more advanced math and science challenges. Students who don’t get them will struggle until they do.

ExploreLearning focuses not only on STEM education but on the most critical challenges within it. The ones that are crucial to a student’s ability to progress in the classroom and enjoy greater opportunity beyond. The ones that are most difficult for teachers to solve on their own. These are exactly the areas we zero in on and solve, because that’s how we help both teachers and students succeed.

We create learning educators know they can count on.

Our team includes a diverse range of professionals, each expert in their respective fields. Educators and developers, scientists and mathematicians, instructional and visual designers, content experts, analysts, and more – we work together to redefine what’s possible in the digital learning space.We take performance seriously, using research to guide development, ongoing testing to guide improvement, and support to ensure educator success. Add in a healthy dose of creativity, and it’s how we deliver solutions that are as effective as they are fun.

We create experiences that students and teachers are excited to use.

The best learning solutions do more than just enable or empower their users. They excite. They tap into something emotional, driving motivation and persistence, giving users a sense of accomplishment, and inspiring them to use what they’ve learned in new ways. Through interactive and intuitive experiences, our solutions make STEM real and tangible while simultaneously sparking imagination. They not only entertain, but challenge, encourage, and reward, allowing teachers and students to see and celebrate progress.

We create confident explorers.

At its core, STEM is about exploration. And we are explorers. We thrive on the ability and opportunity to ask why. To discover answers, expand understanding, and make our world just a little bigger each and every day.It’s our goal to share the power of exploration with everyone we engage, and to help them love it just as much as we do. We give learners the confidence they need to try, to persist, and to continually conquer the unknown.
