Learning Blade is honored to be recognized as a Top STEM Solution in 2022 by Education Technology Insights.

Learning Blade provides educators access to over 400 interactive online lessons and teacher lesson plans that are aligned to state academic standards for grades 5-9. Though this is the core student population focus, many educators in K-4 and 10-12 grades have found ways to utilize these resources to promote career awareness as well.  There is also many project-based learning projects and hands-on projects using common and affordable materials.

When the pandemic hit, Learning Blade was able to quickly adapt and initiate their Backpack App that allowed students, especially those with limited to no internet access, to be able to complete their work remotely by downloading the lessons while at school or hotspot and complete them offline. This is a game changer for rural and urban students.
