Tom Davidson ’94—CEO of educational technology company EVERFI—aims to stop the so-called “summer slide” experienced by school kids at this time of year, according to Roger Groves in EVERFI has teamed up with Major League Baseball to launch a new learning platform described by Groves as “carefully disguised teaching vehicles.”

The program, called “Summer Slugger,” features thirty six interactive baseball-themed computer games designed to boost math and literacy skills. According to Davidson, “each fall teachers spend an average of six weeks re-teaching their students old material that was lost during the summer months.”
