Maria Montessori Google Doodle: How Montessori Education ‘Programmed’ Google’s Founders

Maria Montessori, the Italian physician and educator known for creating an educational model that essentially allows children freedom to learn and create independently, is the subject of today’s Google Doodle. She was born on this date 142 years ago.

No doubt today’s Doodle has some extra meaning for Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Both Page and Brin are Montessori products – Page having attended Okemos Montessori Radmoor School in Michigan, while Brin attended Paint Branch Montessori School in Adelphi, Maryland after emigrating from the Soviet Union.
