Our unique educational model is designed to make learning fun, clear and relevant with educational animations that encourage curiosity, inquiry and independent exploration.
BrainPOP is used in numerous ways in classrooms, at home, and on mobile devices, from introducing a new lesson or topic to illustrating complex subject matter to reviewing before a test. Content is mapped to key academic standards, and easily searchable with our Curriculum Matching Tool. Uniquely suited for 21st-century learning, all content is compatible with interactive whiteboards, learner response systems, projectors, Macs, and PCs. No downloading, installation, or special hardware is required.
It is very competitively priced and there's a subscription suitable for whatever your needs - teacher, educational institution, parent, home educator, or student.
New movies are added on a regular basis and cover a myriad of interests, ranging from the National Curriculum to more personal dilemmas.
We are dedicated to making BrainPOP UK as fantastic a resource for learning as possible, by drafting an advisory team of the best authors, advisors and teachers to help us get the content right.
More than that, we believe that our customer support should be as good as our content and we aim to have really good conversations with you! Meet the BrainPOP UK team.
We never lose sight of the importance of appealing directly to kids and while the medium may change, from desktop to tablet, from textbook to smartphone, our principles don’t.
We hope you love it as much as these people do!

What is the BrainPOP Story?
Devised in 1999 by Dr Kadar BrainPOP grew in the USA from the community of children, teachers and parents using and contributing to the site, to the millions that now use it daily around the world.
BrainPOP did not start life like most educational resources, where publishers begin with a target audience, age group and the learning objectives to be covered. Instead, BrainPOP movies are a result of questions from real kids and teachers, so BrainPOP covers a broad range of subjects, from simple addition to black holes, and William Shakespeare to feminism. Each movie is carefully levelled to make the subject accessible to as many kids as possible, and there are layers of learning in each movie. These are extended by the quizzes and support activities which reinforce and extend the learning opportunities.
