Sophia and Bill Nye Build Excitement for Learning

Our partnership with Bill Nye the Science Guy gets students pumped to learn and truly explains what Sophia is all about. Our shared campaigns for flipping the classroom and fighting the summer brain drain, provided students access to tutorials and quizzes that kept their brains buzzing all summer.

When teachers use the Sophia platform to create and share lessons, they are giving students unique ways to maximize their learning potential. They are also giving themselves the gift of more time to focus on building relationships with students during class. Our partnership with Bill Nye provides students with access to great science content taught by the Science Guy himself.
