Who are we?

We're an ambitious team of educators, engineers and storytellers with a shared desire to reshape global education


LumenEd was founded in 2014 by a group of students who wanted to change the way students communicate across borders. By using custom hardware and video as a medium for conversation, LumenEd is realizing its vision of connecting two classrooms anywhere in the world. Through Video Pen Pals and the Bright Orange Box, we are transforming classrooms and creating insight into cultures and pressing global issues.
