About Forward Education

Do you want to help inspire future generations to make the world a better place?

We’re bringing creativity, coding skills and inspiring Climate Action lessons to the forefront of learning in K-12 classrooms around the world! We believe that technology will unlock a brighter future for us all and that these young generations will help lead the way.

The race to take on Climate Change and the various challenges we face in restoring balance with our planet is the next great Moonshot of our era. Industries will be transformed and millions of jobs will be created in service of making our collective home sustainable. We need these young generations to have hope, inspiration and a variety of technical skills to make that happen - and with the help of great teachers that’s where we come in.

At Forward Education, we make classroom learning systems that make it easy to teach coding in the context of Climate Action technologies and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Students learn about an issue like forest fires and then build/code their own automated tree seeding vehicle while learning about similar projects in the Amazon rainforest. We bring the real world to the classroom to educate, inspire and steer them to the endless opportunities to be a part of making the world a better place. 

Join us in our mission to make a brighter tomorrow.
