About Us

Our Mission

Grok Nation is an online community for people of all ages and backgrounds to dive deep into conversations on contemporary issues. Founded by actress-neuroscientist-mom Mayim Bialik, Grok Nation presents issues in an accessible, relatable and unapologetically nerdy way. From the social impact of pop culture to the value of human connection, from causes and ideas that make a difference to the challenges of raising the next generation of activists, Grok Nation aims to activate readers into engagement in online conversations that lead to offline action, mobilizing individuals toward changing the world as a community.

To grok, for those who are wondering, means to understand in a profound manner. The term comes from the 1961 science-fiction novel Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein.
