Introducing SMART Edu Challenge!

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to juggle your daily tasks and educate your children at home? With schools forced to shut due to the COVID-19 pandemic it can be a very stressful time to be a parent. Here is the silver lining in this: it is a great time to get creative and try something new!



Background

We know your routine has completely changed due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions. As a result, you got a really tough job: keep kids indoors, entertained, while trying to reduce the impact of this unusual situation on their education.

We know that it can be awfully overwhelming to think that nobody really knows how long this is actually going to last. Unfortunately, it seems like it is going to get worse before it gets any better.

But fear not, you are not alone in this! We are here to help your family get through this by supporting your child’s education. It is our mission to deliver high quality education in a fun and engaging way, while making it more accessible to every child. As a way to keep your #SMARTCookie excited about education, we created SMART Edu Challenge!

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.
