BOSTON, March 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Museum of Science, Boston, announced a new partnership with Kahoot!, the global learning and engagement platform company, to expand its suite of impactful virtual learning tools for educators and students. The partnership represents the next phase of the "MOS at School" initiative, which brings together Museum content, educators and EiE®, the Museum's award-winning curricula division, to offer entertaining, informal STEM learning in classrooms and at home for students in grades 1 - 8. The Museum of Science kahoot collections are free for all users, making high-quality science learning accessible to all.

All children need a rock-solid education beyond reading, writing, and arithmetic," said Bill Schawbel of the Schawbel Family Foundation. "Students today need access to technology and STEM programs that compare to those at world-class institutions, benefiting most from programs that meet them where they are. MOS at School does just that, meets children where they are."
