Taproot’s mission is to help reduce the number of children and youth incarcerated or institutionalized. They do this through the creative use of movie-making: blending together human development, digital technology, fun and neuroscience.
Through the creative process, Taproot uses cutting edge neuroscience research on learning and applies it in an exciting way; one that captures the attention of today's tech savvy kids. The human qualities developed are self-awareness and self-control. The educational topics can be anything that needs to be learned: from history to math, economics, social change, healthy behavioral change or substance abuse prevention. The making of the movie makes learning fun. The neuroscience research makes sure learning is remembered.
Taproot is a small family-run business.
