Our mission

Brilliant's mission is to inspire and develop people to achieve their goals in STEM – one person, one question, and one small commitment to learning at a time. We enable great teachers to illuminate the soul of math, science, and engineering through bite-sized, interactive learning experiences. Our courses explore the laws that shape our world, and elevate math and science from something to be feared to a delightful experience of guided discovery. We aim to cultivate a world of better learners, thinkers, and problem solvers.

We welcome learners of all ages to create an account and get started. To understand more about our approach to our work and products, read our principles and see what our members say about us.

In memoriam

Carrie McLaughlin

Kristian Takvam

We remember our friends and colleagues Carrie and Kristian who passed tragically in a diving boat accident on Sept 2, 2019. We're grateful for the time we spent together and the memories we'll forever cherish.

They are alive and well somewhere;

The smallest sprouts show there is really no death,

And if ever there was it led forward life, and does not wait at the end to arrest it,

And ceas'd the moment life appear'd.


All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses,

And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.


– Walt Whitman
