About Us

We build science curriculum that inspires students to design a more sustainable world

  • Using science and engineering for good

  • Creating leadership opportunities

  • Inspiring environmental stewardship

How we started

Green Ninja educational materials originated from research at San José State University that focused on connecting middle school students to science subjects through personal engagement. Support from NSF and NASA helped us better understand student engagement and the powerful role that motivation plays in student learning.

What we are doing now

We applied our understanding to the creation of formal middle school curriculum in line with the Next Generation Science Standards. We became a certified Benefit Corporation in 2016, and now offer our curriculum directly to school districts in the U.S.

What we believe in

Our program is comprehensive, but our fundamental difference is the focus on helping students create agency about their learning and the world they live in.
