"Teaching politics" can be tricky.

That's why we created Lens. Lens is an education platform designed to relieve teachers, administrators, and parents from the stresses of politics entering the classroom. We combine history and politics with social and emotional learning to teach students how to talk about controversial topics without creating a controversial topic.

How We Do It



We save teachers time by aggregating articles grouped by issue, from across the political spectrum, exposing students to a wide array of opinions in the process. We also contextualize current events, explaining not just what the current states of the issues are, but also their developments over time.  



We use politics as a tool to teach students how to engage in sensitive conversations with their peers. We start by equipping teachers with the knowledge on how to conduct these types of conversations and how to teach their students the skills about active listening and vulnerability. 



We orchestrate inter-school events that bring students from across cities together, so they can sit down face-to-face with those with vastly different views than their own. In other words, we create spaces where they are challenged to put the skills they've learned in the classroom into practice in a new setting.
