Sebastian Thrun wins Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award in Education for Udacity work!

We were honored to hear that Sebastian has won the inaugural Smithsonian Ingenuity Award in Education for Udacity!

As one of nine winners, we’re honored to be in the company of such folks as Esperanza Spalding, Elon Musk, Benh Zeitlin, Bryan Stevenson, Pardis Sabeti, Jim Anderson, Anne Kelly Knowles, and high school sophomore, Jack Andraka (amazing!).
