Study Jams Expands!

It's a busy time here at Firecracker. Our product team is hard at work building new features for use during dedicated test prep, and our content team is focused on creating as many CVs and board-style practice exams as possible. But we're not just hiding in the office. We're also getting involved in as many community engagement activities as possible. In particular, we're making Study Jams a reality on the international stage. With the help of some of our most engaged medical students, these events combine free food and drinks with some of Firecracker's best integrative content in a peer-led environment.

With over ten Study Jams in the books across the US, India, and Israel, we've learned that students find this informal group session model extremely valuable. Here's what students are saying about Study Jams:

"It was enjoyable and I believe cooperative studying, especially during lunchtime, is a great way to review."

"Really good session! My first Study Jam! I want these to be often continued - really beneficial!"

"Awesome food, great direction by senior, thank you!" 

"[Study Jams] helped me to review material in a fun and collaborative way." 

"Pizza, friends, learning, magic!" "I am in love with Firecracker!"


Our next planned Study Jam locations for this month are Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York and Eastern Virginia Medical School. To signup to host a Study Jam, just fill out your information here or email me at for more details. We would love to bring Study Jams to your school soon!
