From our cofounder

In 2014, Elon Musk asked me to start an experimental school with him at SpaceX.

The goal was to develop students who are enthralled by complexity and solving for the unknown.

Synthesis offers the most innovative learning experiences from that school. They're designed to cultivate student voice, strategic thinking, and collaborative problem-solving.

I believe Synthesis builds these skills like no other education experience.

Until recently, Synthesis was only available to a handful of SpaceX families. Today, our community is worldwide and growing quickly. Excited for you to be a part of it.

Level up your child's problem-solving.
