 what we do 

Eyes on the sky, feet on the ground (and a handful of sticky notes).

Design is our language

We use design-based methods to co-create technology, platforms,
curricula, social programs, and strategic initiatives with students,
teachers, families, and districts, as well as private and governmental

Learning is our target

We produce knowledge and tools that imagine, re-design and facilitate how children and adults learn.

Partnerships are our way

We have expertise in facilitating community partnerships, co-creating with communities, and translating future imaginations into strategic plans for implementation and continuous improvement.

Equity is our core.

We build from the histories and assets of our community partners. We are attuned to creating culturally sustaining solutions that come from the community.
