Our impact: it all stems from research

Kide Science has a unique approach to learning: it feels like playing! But what's essential to note is that the research behind it is a serious business. In fact, the research is the very reason we're here. 

Kide Science's pedagogical model is based upon five years of academic research led by Ph.D. Vartiainen (2016), and further refined through additional research projects (eg. Vartiainen & Kumpulainen (2020). 

The impact of Kide Science's approach is evident through four levels of research.

Increasing teachers' confidence in their everyday practise.

Kide Science offers engaging lesson plans to make learning fun. But that's not all. We place inquiry-based learning at the heart of every lesson in order to build everyone's confidence, including the educator.
We understand that implementing new teaching practices can be challenging for teachers. That's why Kide also provides a range of professional development training opportunities.

One of our main aims for the training is to achieve that ‘aha moment:’ where educators realize that actually, inquiry-based learning can happen everywhere, at any time.
In fact, after our training, over 80% of teachers feel an increase in confidence using an inquiry approach.

I think for the busy teacher, who feels they are not incorporating enough science into their curriculum, this would be a useful and time saving investment because it is so clear about exactly what you need for each lesson and how to set it up.
