Harvard Knerd Talk: Join Education’s “Walk on the Moon” [VIDEO]

In the coming months, we’ll be traveling to some of the most venerated institutions of higher learning to find rockstar engineers — and bring them back to Knewton. We’ll be at Harvard’s Faculty Club on October 9 talking Knerd shop. Click here for all the event details.

Check out this short video we put together featuring three Harvard-educated Knerds!

CMU Knerd Talk, and Why Two Alums Chose Knewton

Over the next few months, we’ll be trekking around the country to visit college engineering programs and recruit a few good Knerds.

Our first stop is Carnegie Mellon, which just happens to be the alma mater of two of Knewton’s greatest data scientists. We made a short video about how George and Jesse’s experiences in Pittsburgh helped shape their careers as Knerds. Take a look, and meet George in the flesh at our campus Knerd Talk on September 14 in the Dowd Room at University Center!

Spring ’12 Campus Tour Wrap-up [VIDEO]

We’ve spent the last month visiting some of the best engineering schools in the country and talking to some incredibly smart students.

At each school, we were blown away by the students’ amazing enthusiasm for working on projects that advance the common good — building health informatics databases in Uganda, designing haptic robotic arms, and much more.

We wrapped up our last campus visit of the season at Princeton yesterday. Now, we leave you with a final video about how our own engineers are inspired by the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on how the world learns.
