What is a Water Bear?

A Water Bear, or tardigrade, is the world’s most indestructible organism. These eight-legged animals can survive for thirty years without food or water and can sustain extreme temperatures up to 150° Celsius. They can even survive in the frozen vacuum of space (which no other earth-dwelling creature can claim!). Tardigrades have the ability to survive any catastrophe that would wipe out all other forms of life on planet Earth. The fact is, Water Bears are resilient.

The resiliency of the Water Bear can be applied both to our learning philosophy and our company work ethic. Like the Water Bear, learning a new skill takes mental toughness, persistence, and durability. In challenging times Water Bears, become physically drained, but then turn things around and persist to success. Similar to learning, we believe you must continue to challenge yourself to move closer to mastery.

Our company work ethic and values align with characteristics of the Water Bear. We are a resilient, energetic and highly motivated team. Our passion for learning drives us forward to provide the highest quality learning experiences for your audience.
