At The Undead Institute we believe “getting braaains should be fun.” We’re trying to take stodgy and boring technical topics and inject them with life… errr… unlife(?)… very flustered You know what we mean.

Why Zombies? Not just a gimmick. We use apocalyptic analogies to make the concepts clearer and silly jokes to make learning fun. Plus research suggests laughing while learning helps you retain the information. For more info check out this Fast Company Article and this one from Edutopia.
