Learn Fresh is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that improves student engagement and achievement through innovative learning experiences, leveraging students’ passion points to power their STEM and social-emotional learning. Through our work, we explicitly strive to reach students who have historically been underrepresented in STEM fields, specifically girls, students of color, and students from economically challenged communities.
Our organization’s flagship experience, NBA Math Hoops, has engaged over 250,000 students who have solved more than 175 million math problems through the program. The latest third-party evaluation of NBA Math Hoops indicated a 18% increase in participating students’ math scores on a NAEP-modeled assessment and a 35% increase on an assessment evaluating math fluency, with 92% of educators reporting that the experience improved their students’ overall attitudes towards math.
