Kide Science recognized again as one of the 100 most impactful innovations in K-12 education

Kide Science is excited to announce that it has once again been selected by the global education nonprofit HundrED, to its HundrED 2021 list, highlighting 100 of the brightest innovations in K-12 education from around the world.

"We're honored to be recognized for a second time by HundrED. Our team continues to make great strides in both making science accessible to our youngest learners, and in helping teachers create fun, play-filled learning environments," says Sari Hurme-Mehtälä, CEO of Kide Science.

To make this year’s Global Collection, a shortlist of innovations was reviewed by 150 Academy Members consisting of academics, educators, innovators, funders, and leaders from over 100 countries. In total, there were over 5,000 innovations reviewed by the Academy, based on their impact and scalability. They were then evaluated by HundrED’s Research Team to make the final selection.

Feeling and acting like real scientists (or writers, or mathematicians, or historians…) is key to the development of the 21st century skills.
