BrainPOP

For over two decades, BrainPOP has been trusted by educators and parents worldwide to provide engaging and impactful learning experiences for all kids. With a presence in over two-thirds of U.S. districts through school and district subscriptions and an estimated annual reach of 25 million students, BrainPOP is empowering kids to take agency over their learning and excel in and out of the classroom. 

The company was acquired in 2022 by KIRKBI, the family-owned holding and investment company of the LEGO brand, marking a significant milestone as their first acquisition in the digital learning realm. We are thrilled to continue making learning fun and accessible with the strategic guidance and support of KIRKBI.

BrainPOP Values

Our values reflect how we hold ourselves to our mission and our vision, and are incorporated into daily life at BrainPOP. We acknowledge and celebrate each other for values-centric behaviors.

  • Act Like an Owner: To be successful, every employee needs to feel accountable, act with empowerment, and be fully invested in the mission. There is a solution to every problem: Bring one to the table. "That's not my job” is not in your vocabulary.
  • Create Simplicity: Creating simplicity is an exercise in mindfulness. Pursue thoughtful reduction: Distill to the essentials and remove unnecessary complexity. The more informed and educated we are on a topic or an idea, the better we will be able to explain it to others in simple terms
  • Lead with Empathy: Start with Empathy. Assume positive intent. Allow yourself to be guided by curiosity and compassion. Manage with Empathy. Create with Empathy.
  • Use the Power of Today: Resist the urge to postpone important challenges, opportunities, and decisions. Address issues when they arise, especially between people. Don't make a habit of postponing the important for the sake of the urgent.
  • Know the Goal: You need to understand the big picture to understand what success looks like at a macro and micro level. Company, team, and personal growth depends on how well you map your individual goals to our company goals.
  • Learn and Improve Together: We are one team, and we win together. taking proactive steps to master a new skill is a strength. Be a model of humility and perseverance for others as you learn by doing.
