NSF seeds edtech startup Couragion to boost STEM career education



The National Science Foundation is seeking to increase the pipeline of science, technology and engineering and math talent with investments in edtech startups that make such careers accessible — and cool — to underserved kids.

Couragion, a Denver, Colo.-based startup is building an application to make learning about STEM careers fun and accessible through videos, games, and self-reflection quizzes.

The $750,000 NSF grant, through NSF’s Small Business Innovation Research program, will help the company amass STEM content and develop its platform “based on big data, machine learning and predictive modeling techniques.”
