Who we are
We are a dedicated team of scientists, educators, and psychologists. Amid war’s hardships, we support the academic growth of Ukrainian children and the psychological well-being of refugee families.
Earthlings Hub is a non-profit international educational initiative [formed under the auspices of the 501(c)(3) science nonprofit Blue Marble Space Institute of Science (EIN: 27-0184094)] organized by leading educators, scientists, and psychologists from the USA, Canada, Europe, and Ukraine to provide children displaced by war in Ukraine (including those in refugee camps and evacuated orphanages) an opportunity to strengthen their motivation in learning and expand their education via the multidisciplinary, inquiry-based, student-centered online environment, providing students with essential learning skills and habits of mind required in the modern world. In addition, we offer counseling and psychological support to parents and caregivers, recognizing their crucial role in children’s learning and well-being.
Our initiative is backed by renowned educators, researchers, and scientists from around the globe. We intend to share our educational content and best teaching practices with the general public and partner educational organizations, particularly those who help refugees across the world.
