Coded Minds, a Dubai-based global education company, has announced that it has acquired EdgeMakers STEM Learning Lab, an innovative education company in the United States and Canada.
Headquartered in San Francisco, USA, and Calgary, Canada, the acquired company provides cutting edge STEM/STEAM innovation and leadership education, professional development and design thinking programs for kids and teachers in Canada, the US and the rest of the Americas.
This is the first time a 100 percent acquisition has been made by a Gulf Cooperation Council-based private education company in the US and Canada. EdgeMakers' 50-member education team will merge into Coded Minds and become part of its global educational offerings.
Coded Minds is on a mission to close the education-skills gap and prepare students of all ages for the post-Fourth Industrial Revolution world in the 21st century.
