While in LA for the Finding Dory Event we had the opportunity to check out Pixar in a Box. Sponsored by Disney, Pixar in a Box is a collaboration between Pixar Animation Studios and Khan Academy that give students an opportunity to see how math and science get put into practical use.
I first heard about Khan Academy a few years back when my girls were in middle school. The school they attended had students use the math lessons for extra help. Other than that, I didn’t know much about this FREE online school; that helps teachers and students with lessons in all subjects.
Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We’ve also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.
