Magrid is a language-independent pedagogical program in Luxembourg for the development of children’s early visual-spatial and mathematical abilities. 63.5% of young pupils in Luxembourg do not have access to education in their home language and are thus likely to miss out on learning opportunities. Magrid helps overcome language barriers or hearing difficulties by providing children with learning-by-doing tasks to visualize mathematical concepts and ideas. Magrid teaches maths skills to preschoolers intuitively, turning multilingualism into opportunity.
