Learn about DragonBox - our philosophy and how we got to where we are today.
The DragonBox Method is not a simple translation of traditional learning methods to a digital medium, it is harnessing the power of digital tools to create a new, deeper learning experience. We believe that children should be actively engaged in their learning process because they are, by nature, curious and inquisitive. They begin learning the world around them instinctively through play and experimentation (trial and error). The DragonBox Method taps into this innate ability to explore their universe through play to provide an easier, richer educational experience for any student.
In 2016, DragonBox turned 5 years old! Discover the steps that brought us to where we are today.
