 ETA hand2mind

There's a moment that teachers live for. It's the moment when a student's eyes light up as he or she finally solves a tough problem. It's an "aha!" moment, and it wouldn't be possible without creativity, preparation, and a passion for teaching.

At ETA hand2mind, we live for that moment, too. In fact, we have been helping teachers create these moments for more than 40 years. We know that hands-on learning is the key to creating a million moments like that every day, in every classroom across the country.

Kodo Kids

Kodo Kids is devoted to enriching the lives of children.  This is our mission, our livelihood and most of all, our passion! 

In today's world, children have less opportunity to think deeply and innovate creatively.  Experiences which cultivate these skills sets are largely absent in early education, at the age which these skills are most critical.  Kodo kids seeks to help provide these experiences through playful, open-ended products which promote intentional learning, investigative personalities and out of the box problem solving.  Through these experiences, the foundation for lifelong curiosity and development of the whole child is cultivated.

The Kodo Kids team puts the child first in everything we do.  We fully embrace and do not deviate from the philosophy of learning through relevant play experiences.  Children have an instinctual urge to explore and discover, which they achieve through play.  We strive to provide tools and resources for the Early Childhood Education classroom which cultivate the opportunity for kids to think deeply and creatively, and foster intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.

National Inventors Hall of Fame

We believe our role is to not only honor the individuals whose inventions have made the world a better place, but also to ensure American ingenuity continues to thrive in the hands of coming generations. This belief drives our mission: to recognize inventors and invention, celebrate our country’s rich, innovative history, inspire creativity, and advance the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.

True to our mission, we don’t just talk the innovation talk, we walk the innovation walk by reinventing what a Hall of Fame, a museum, or even what a monument can be and do. Instead of being defined by the past, we invest in the future. We continue to push the limits and challenge ourselves to be a dynamic organization that comes to life in classrooms, curricula, and competitions throughout the country. In partnership with over 1,300 schools and districts nationwide, we connect inventors to creative minds of all ages to provide these future leaders with the experiences and tools they need to help them realize their innovative potential.

KinderLab Robotics

KinderLab Robotics emerged from a need to make widely available Marina Umaschi Bers’ research on new technologies for young children at Tufts University.

Marina grew frustrated when presenting her work at conferences and always being asked: “How can I get a robotic kit?” and not having a good answer.

During a walk in Walden Pond, near Boston, her friend Mitch Rosenberg, veteran executive at several robotics start-ups, decided to join forces to fulfill an old-dream of his: improving STEM education.

Bedtime Math

Bedtime Math is the brainchild of Laura Bilodeau Overdeck. While not a professional teacher, she does know something about numbers. As a kid she sat and memorized perfect squares for fun, back before it was cool. As a mom, she (along with her husband John) started giving math problems to their two older kids; when their 2-year-old started hollering for his own math problem, they knew they were onto something, and Bedtime Math was born. Laura holds a BA in astrophysics from Princeton University, and an MBA in public policy from the Wharton School. When not playing with numbers, Laura pursues her other interests, which include chocolate, wine, extreme gravity stunts, and Lego Mindstorms.
