The next milestone in democratizing science education

A Message from Mads and Michael

We are announcing today that Labster has received a $60 million dollar investment in our Series C round of funding, led by Andreessen Horowitz. We are thrilled by this milestone and more determined than ever to reach new teachers and students. 

Our next task is to scale up our work to make Labster available to students wherever they are and however they are learning. We’re looking for talented people to join our team and help us with our mission. 

Education must evolve to truly increase its impact

When most people look back to the science classes they took in high school and university, they probably remember how challenging they were to get through. This wasn’t just because the concepts were complex – it was also because the material was often presented in a way that didn’t align with the various ways people can engage in learning.

Think of how much you can learn by playing a video game – the rules of fantasy worlds, or how to efficiently complete Crewmate tasks in Among Us. Students know much more about wizards, movie characters or sport stars than they do about the science that’s all around them. 

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Students can learn anything if they’re motivated and they have access to engaging experiences. 

As the world is faced with challenges like climate change and a global pandemic, we can’t afford to continue to lose promising students who never discover their talent or love for science. And we must do much more to reach the millions of poorly served learners, including young women who are so dramatically underrepresented in the field of science. 

It is simply not acceptable to just take existing teaching methods and deliver them through Zoom – we can and must do more to evolve how we use technology for better learning. The need is even more pressing with Covid forcing so many to learn from home, mostly only supplying them with the most basic technology to connect with their teachers and peers. 

We see that the current use of EdTech is preceding a new wave of technological advances that will radically improve education for the better (as described by our new board member Scott Kupor here).

It can be much more motivating and engaging to learn than it is today, and we are passionate about bringing this change to students around the world. We can and must do better.

Our Mission Continues

It is critically important that we engage students with Labster now to help them discover their interest in science and motivate them to stick with it through graduation. We strongly believe the engaged science students of today will become the scientists who help solve tomorrow’s urgent challenges. 

Today, the new round of investment in Labster will support our continuing mission to empower the next generation of scientists to change the world. We are looking for new team members to help us help students globally, and hope that you will consider joining us.
