HundrED.Org is a not-for-profit organization, which seeks and shares inspiring innovations in K12 education. In a world filled with uncertainty, it is imperative to equip our children with the tools to adapt to whatever unfolds in their lives and the world.

The world is full of inspiring innovations, but they can struggle to spread beyond their immediate environments. That's why HundrED identifies impactful and scalable K12 innovations and helps them spread.

"It is heartening to be in a school where children know why they are there and why they are being asked to learn things that they are learning. The most important thing for a child to get from school is the habit of being curious and learning, and wanting to use that understanding to make the world a better place."Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson
