Hi! I'm Martha Madison.

When it comes to STEM education, I’ve got your back. My award-winning game series brings STEM into your classroom in new and exciting ways that will have your students asking for more. My games give students hands-on experience with the critical physical science concepts, and you get standards-aligned lesson plans to help drive it all home. I promise, you’ve never seen student engagement like this before.

Let’s work together to get students excited about STEM!
