We at BrainCo realize that the events of the past few months have brought education as we know it to a crossroads. Although classes have either stopped or continued online for the time being, these next few months give us time to chart new paths for the coming years.
Therefore, we have assembled a series of informational interviews and webinars that we hope you can use to further your learning and add to your professional development. We also hope that you can also learn a little bit about what we can offer to your educational environments.
