Stanford Graduate School of Education researchers found that our approach really works:

Students who experience our programs tend to:

  • Persevere at unfamiliar challenges
  • Share their ideas more freely
  • Respond better in the face of failure

In our 2022 customer survey, families:


Our research-based curriculum fuses STEAM learning with the Galileo Innovation Approach (GIA), our pedagogical framework inspired by:

  • The design thinking methodology developed at the Stanford
  • Carol Dweck’s groundbreaking work on the elements of a growth mindset

Every project and activity sets children up to do three things:

  1. Build their innovator’s mindset —practicing things like being visionary, collaborative and determined
  2. Work through an iterative design process that includes creating, testing, failing and redesigning, until the goal is achieved
  3. Learn something new

The Result

Students come home with more than just cool projects—they take with them the critical thinking, collaboration and creativity skills that they need for success in school and that are increasingly required in the job market.

Outstanding curriculum + incredible staff = a program that develops young people into innovators and creative problem solvers.”
- Susie Wise, Ph.D, Founder & Former Director, K12 Lab, Stanford
