Founded in 1999, BrainPOP®
creates animated, curricular content that engages students, supports educators, and bolsters achievement. Our award-winning online educational resources include BrainPOP Jr.®
, BrainPOP Español™
, and, for English language learners, BrainPOP ESL™
. BrainPOP is also home to GameUp®
, a free educational games portal for the classroom.
In traditional, blended, and "flipped" learning settings, BrainPOP supports individual, team, and whole-class learning. At school and in informal learning environments, our characters help introduce new topics and illustrate complex concepts. Our Mixer™
tool lets users tailor their assessments to meet all students' needs. A great fit for mobile learning and BYOD classrooms, BrainPOP’s educational apps
have been downloaded millions of times and lauded in countless reviews.
All our resources are fully supported by BrainPOP Educators
, our free teacher community. Our content is mapped to the Common Core, aligned to academic standards, and searchable with our online Standards Tool
. BrainPOP is easy to use, with no downloading, installation, or special hardware required.
BrainPOP was conceived by Avraham Kadar, M.D., an immunologist and pediatrician, as a creative way to explain difficult concepts to his young patients. Today, we're used in almost 20 percent of U.S. schools, and are growing internationally.
We take pride in our in-house team of educators, animators, and writers, who produce and continually improve BrainPOP, incorporating valuable teacher and parent input. Aiding us is a talented group of educators who serve as our Academic Advisors
. We also partner
with an array of educational game creators and other education technology companies and organizations.
