Our Story

When students learn biology, physics or even psychology, they often do experiments. They explore and discover first hand the inner workings of things. Why hasn’t this been the case for studying economics, management or the social sciences in general?

To us, what was missing was a new kind of laboratory because the social world cannot be explored with old equipment.

This lab needs to connect thousands of students simultaneously. This lab needs to handle repeated interactions timely and efficiently. This lab needs to help the students relate their experience to theory with carefully designed user interfaces and narratives. This lab needs to provide content including teaching plans, data annotations and student notes to help make adoption easy.

Led by founders from Caltech, we set out to build this lab.
