LearnStorm, our free back-to-school program, is back for a second year and open for teacher registration!

LearnStorm gives teachers a powerful tool to jumpstart the school year. Teachers can assign personalized practice and research-backed growth mindset activities that teach students how the brain gets stronger and smarter with new learning.  We’re proud to have worked with PERTS, a Stanford research center, on this year’s expanded growth mindset curriculum.

Students get real-time feedback and master skills as they progress through LearnStorm. Together, teachers and students celebrate progress on an interactive tracker, unlocking individual and class prizes as they go.

Watch some very excited students celebrating their LearnStorm success.

LearnStorm runs Tuesday, September 4 through Friday, November 9. Teachers can easily enroll using a Khan Academy account.

Last year, LearnStorm reached nearly one million students and 24,000 teachers in the US, with schools in all 50 states participating. Approximately 98% of teachers surveyed said they plan to use LearnStorm again this year. In pilots of LearnStorm, 96% of students reported their learning confidence increased while using Khan Academy.

LearnStorm is made possible through the generosity of MathWorks, a Massachusetts-based developer of software for scientists and engineers and a sponsor of LearnStorm.
