Innovation Birmingham-based educational platform, The Wonder Why Society has today partnered with UK high street stationery retailer Ryman with a view to inspire disengaged children.
The Wonder Why Society is a fully moderated online community where children can safely connect and learn all about the world.
In addition to providing teachers with materials and making it easy for businesses to work with children in an interactive and engaging environment, the Ryman’s partnership prompts an expansion of the platform’s educational content. Samantha Fisher, CEO of the Wonder Why Society said:
“We are delivering a really exciting new way for children to learn with each other and with industry experts. We are opening up a whole new world to learners and are really looking forward to working with Ryman to engage children, motivate them to learn independently.
“We want to introduce them to the world of work at an early age so they can aspire to be whatever they want to be. This partnership means lots of new, exciting educational content to be housed on the Wonder Why website for children to interact with, learn from and engage with, including competitions where children can showcase their work, their talents and win cool prizes.”
Ryman believes that working with young people and inspiring future generations is central to future innovation and enterprise and by working with a business like The Wonder Why Society, enables the stationary giant to make an investment in its future. Dean Morris, Marketing Director for Ryman said:
“It’s important to consider the changes happening in education and how younger generations are learning today. This is a great opportunity for Ryman to help the Wonder Why Society in delivering a richer learning experience related to the industry, a side some children will not get to learn about until they get their first job.”
