Mia Mellon, Programs Director for Khan Academy tells Maria Quiban all about their new program, LearnStorm.
Khan Academy LearnStorm is a free, six-week challenge that helps students build the skills and mindsets to start the school year strong.
Students can earn virtual prizes. If they work together, their class can win limited-supply LearnStorm prize boxes filled with pencils, stickers, and more. Teacher-customizable certificates allow teachers to celebrate their students' learning and progress in ways that work for them. Students earn limited-edition growth mindset badges to collect and display on their Khan Academy virtual profiles.
LearnStorm is open to all students and classrooms in grades 3-12 across the US! For more information, you can visit www.learnstorm2017.org
