About Us

Our Beginning...

Since 1981, Micrograms has developed educational software for children at grade levels Pre K - 6. The founders of Micrograms started as teachers in elementary school classrooms. When computers were first introduced, they filled the software void by developing educational programs for use in the back of their classrooms, then across the hall, and across the district. Designing and programming at night, on weekends, and through summer vacations, they decided to share their creations more broadly by starting Micrograms Software. Eventually they left their classrooms, trading their direct influence on a handful of students for a chance to build a software company to impact millions of students across the nation.

Quality...

The essence of our software then was as it is now. We continue to rely on a thorough knowledge of the elementary curriculum to present well-organized lessons. We motivate students with creative challenges and captivating graphics. We keep students focused on the skill at hand, guiding them toward success with specifically targeted curriculum objectives, while salting in a touch of humor. When learning is fun, they will come back for more. Finally, every Micrograms program provides thorough recordkeeping allowing teachers to track student progress and identify areas of need.

Consistency...

Micrograms has grown a lot in nearly 30 years, but has remained a small company. We are small in the sense that we have a closely knit development team with excellent communication between the teacher/designers, artists, programmers, and editors. Because every Micrograms program is developed in-house rather than contracted out to programming firms, our quality from program to program is consistent. The flow of teacher comments we receive express appreciation for the same strengths, regardless of the program title to which they refer. Our customers can have confidence that the students who clamor for one Micrograms program will be as eager for the next. Teachers who find one Micrograms program to be highly effective, will likely be as satisfied with another.

The effectiveness and consistency of Micrograms software has made us a favorite in thousands of U.S. elementary schools. We hope you and your students enjoy our work as we continue to develop new products.
