You can choose your own self-paced educational adventure with The Lift Project, but the most popular approach is to take one lesson each week over 10 weeks.

Each Lesson:

Learn the content by watching a fun and entertaining video presentation, listening to an audio presentation, or reading to more deeply explore the science. Or do all three. You choose.

Experience fun but powerful challenges that involve putting what you have learnt into practice. It’s “challenge by choice”.

Think about and reflect on what you are learning and experiencing. Take a quiz if you like and receive a certificate of completion.
