Big Universe was founded in 2007 with the mission of improving the world through education. We prepare students for college and career using digital solutions for K-12 that accelerate literacy by inspiring students and empowering teachers.
The Big Universe platform delivers a one stop literacy solution using a readymade library of thousands of leveled eBooks from well known publishers, with integrated tools for writing, listening, speaking, assessment, sharing, language use, and student management.
Our name is derived from the fact that we live in a (very) big universe. Our sun, an average sized star, is 1.3 million times larger than Earth in volume. Our galaxy has over 200 billion stars; we are 30 thousand light years from the center of our galaxy. There are over 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe.
Considering the massive size of our universe, all the infighting which we engage in on our small planet, seems like an enormous waste of time and resources. At Big Universe, our mission is to inspire students to learn, so they can become tomorrow’s scientists, doctors, musicians, architects, writers ... and make our world a better place.
