Educurious is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the educational outcomes of U.S. high school students. We are creating the high school curriculum that students need now for success in college, careers and life. We are reinventing the traditional engagement model to be meaningful and compelling to 21st century learners, putting into practice what we know really works based on deep and wide research. The Educurious curriculum is built on new materials, connections and delivery systems that capture students’ interest and imagination and equip them for success in the real world.
Educurious is on a mission to reduce our nation’s high school dropout rates. Our project-based curriculum connects students to real issues they care about and equips them with the lifelong learning skills for success. Our courses foster collaboration among students, teachers and our global network of real-world Experts.
We are pleased to be funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and to work in conjunction with the University of Washington College of Education and the Institute for Math and Science Education (funded by the National Science Foundation). Together, we’re creating the 21st-century education that our kids and our country need to thrive in a fast-changing world.
