Our philosophy

Welcome to Brainsteam Education, a company committed to revolutionizing the learning experience of children through innovative augmented reality (AR) tools. Brainsteam Education was conceived by Dr. Isil Hamdemir, a scientist, serial entrepreneur, and a mother of two boys based out of Seattle, Washington.

Our founder, Dr. Hamdemir, is a graduate of the Middle East Technical University, where she was the top of her class in the Chemistry department. She further honed her knowledge and skills in the field by earning a Ph.D. from Colorado State University and completing her postdoctoral research at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, Washington. Her impressive academic background, combined with her lifelong passion for education, ignited the spark that led to the creation of Brainsteam Education.

Here at Brainsteam, our mission is to level the playing field in education. We create AR education cards and book sets for K-5 students, offering a multidimensional learning experience that engages children of all abilities. Our unique approach allows gifted students to rapidly internalize knowledge while also catering to the individual needs of students with learning disabilities. It's a more personal, immersive, and exciting way to learn, leading to better comprehension and retention of knowledge.

Dr. Hamdemir is deeply passionate about her work. She serves as the Vice President of the Women in Science chapter in Seattle, and is the Chair of the International Children's Festival. She infuses this passion into Brainsteam, making it not just a business, but a force for change in education. Dr. Hamdemir's vision is to make learning accessible and enjoyable for all children, helping them to realize their full potential.

Join us on this exciting journey to transform the educational landscape. With Brainsteam Education, we can empower our children to learn in the way that best suits them, igniting their curiosity, and laying the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. Thank you for visiting, and we look forward to making a difference in your child's educational journey.
