“In a year when students needed interactive learning experiences more than ever, Learning Undefeated has reached the incredible milestone of inspiring more than one million students through hands-on STEM education,” said Brian Gaines, Learning Undefeated CEO. “When schools were closed due to COVID-19, our culture of innovation led us to develop hybrid learning resources that kept students connected to STEM subjects, even without access to the specialized tools they might normally have in the classroom. Our new digital learning program has amplified Learning Undefeated’s impact in ways we couldn’t have imagined, and the demand just continues to grow.”
Over 200 students across three states — some as young as five years old! — participated in education recovery summer camps during summer 2021. Learning Undefeated’s disaster recovery education program emphasizes engaging, hands-on STEM learning experiences designed to help students re-engage with learning during a time when disaster-related stresses are incredibly real. The Young Science Explorers program reengaged students in learning and provided them with real-world STEM experiences.
