About Our Approach to Innovation & Education

BizzyB is a first-of-its-kind challenge-based learning platform that combines project-based learning, STEM, innovation & entrepreneurial mindset training.

Design Principles Behind BizzyB

BizzyB combines traditional curriculum models, contemporary project-based learning and leading-edge information technologies to yield a next-generation education system. The result is a flexible platform that offers a collaborative learning environment.

Produced and published by Bizgenics Foundation, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, BizzyB is the result of a three-year grant by The Larry & Helen Hoag Foundation to create an online student innovation and entrepreneurship platform. We are very thankful to the Hoag Foundation for providing the resources to create the BizzyB program.

Leveling the Playing Field Through Mobile Devices
