Hi! I'm Martha Madison.

As parents and educators, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to engage with our children and get them excited about learning. What if we could wrap up STEM learning in an activity they already know and love? I’m excited to share that my suite of digital learning games does just that. We’ve designed these games alongside teachers, subject matter experts and students to be engaging, standards-aligned and – best of all – results driven. My games have proven to increase both content recognition and science club attendance!

Let’s work together to get your kids excited about STEM!

Bring Physical Science to Life with Martha Madison!

Proof in numbers

95%

of communication during gameplay was actively focused on science and collaboration

95%

of the STEM affiliation gap was closed by minority and economically disadvantaged students in comparison to majority peers

25 minutes

of play facilitated significant concept recognition, which remained in long-term memory even 2 weeks after the play session

For more astonishing numbers:

Martha's Scientific Method

The Martha Madison game curriculum is proven to increase content recognition after just one play session. Here’s how we do it.

Content tailored for the classroom
