From inspiring learning games...
When math teacher Jean-Baptiste Huynh noticed that many of his young and enthusiastic students, although otherwise intelligent, struggled with algebra, he figured there was a problem with the way the subject was taught, and not with the students themselves.
Because of this, he decided to found his own educational software company, WeWantToKnow, together with Patrick Marchal, Ph.d in cognitive science. Teamed with Jerome Lacoste, they create the multiple Award Winning Game, DragonBox Algebra.

Researcher and pedagogue
Remi Brissiaud, a French mathematician, researcher and a pedagogue, joined forces in 2016 with the DragonBox team to create digital tools, that would allow young students to visualize and understand math concepts at a deeper level in a classroom setting.
He brought his extensive knowledge and experience with curriculum design to bridge research on math didactics with game design. His work greatly integrated with DragonBox’s previous innovations to create the solution that would eventually become “Les Noums” - the French math curriculum.
Remi Brissiaud was an integral part creating this curriculum, adapted by thousands of schools. His work continues to inspire teachers to engage young learners in exploring math in a meaningful way with DragonBox digital tools.

Today, the Dragonbox Team is present in France, Norway, Finland and beyond! With a team composed of educators, game designers, developers and illustrators, all experts in their fields, Dragonbox invents the educational tools of tomorrow.
