FAQs

How will kids learn from this?

We teach kids 21st century skills using hi-tech spy stories. Because not every kid wants to be a coder, but everyone wants to be a spy. We weave the KS1 & KS2 curriculum into everything we make - stories, offline activities, live experiences, online games - but it never feels like homework. Instead, kids are carrying out top secret spy work.


What is STEM?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

STEAM, is not just what comes out of a kettle, it extends STEM to sneak art in there too.

Through STE(A)M subjects kids develop key skills including: problem solving, creativity and critical thinking.

What are 21st century skills?

These are skills that have been identified as being critical for success in the 21st century. They were identified as the key ingredients needed to prepare kids for a fast-changing, increasingly automated, information-saturated world.

They’ve been boiled down to the 4Cs - communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity - these are things that humans do well and machines not so well.

Bright Little Labs has developed its own curriculum which outlines the 21st century learning that we embed in our products.

How does Bright Little Labs make products?
