    Learning Blade is an engaging online platform for student centered, self-paced learning that is tied to academic standards. This technology has been validated by Battelle Education and recommended by ACT in their “2014 Condition of STEM” National Report as a valuable STEM-related educational resource.  You can request a Learning Blade introductory webinar, school account or training for your middle school. Only one account is required per school.  Unlimited student and teacher accounts can then be set up.  

    SIGN UP at 
    You too can experience what administrator Dr. Jeremy Dockery, Assistant Principal at Baldwin High School, GA reports “I have never seen anything like Learning Blade before in my 12 years as an educator and administrator. The program’s “missions” are so engaging and interactive that students do not even realize that they are learning. Learning Blade is an excellent way to get students interested in and excited about STEM education. As an administrator, I love the fact that each lesson is correlated to the Common Core Standards.”
