When students fail to master basic math concepts at an early age, they often struggle later, to graduate from high school and advance in today's technology-driven workplaces. Cisco helped MIND Research Institute scale distribution of their innovative math instructional software to help more children conquer basic math and stay in school.
The MIND Research Institute is an education-based nonprofit founded by neuroscientists and cognitive learning researchers who study the way children learn math. MIND developed the Spatial Temporal (ST) Math instructional software program with a new approach to learning math.
Cisco helped MIND scale delivery and access to ST Math with cash and product grants to transition the software to a web-based platform. Cisco partners with MIND Research Institute to invest in innovative educational programs that provide students with the foundation to succeed beyond school.
Cisco multiplied the impact of our investment by helping MIND pilot ST Math software in school districts and connecting MIND with City Year, a community partner that provides tutoring and mentoring to high-risk students. Students using ST Math deeply understand math, develop perseverance and problem-solving skills, and become life-long learners prepared for success.
