DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION OF STEM LEADERS
We are committed to building a passion for dreaming and applying creativity at all ages.
The STEMpreneur focuses on introducing students of all ages to the exciting world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Birthed from a recognition of the power of combining the skills of STEM and the concepts of Business & Entrepreneurship, The STEMpreneur seeks to support the dreams of our rising generations by fostering interests and skills in STEM Careers to help them create a meaningful impact in the world.
Scientific study aims to understand the natural world. Through an established methodology of investigation, not only do we better understand universal laws, but we build our knowledge of how to these discoveries can be applied to human needs.
Technology improves our ability to change people's lives. It is the result of applying our mastery of science and math, through established engineering design processes to create tools, products and capable services.
Engineering is the practical application of scientific discoveries and mathematical knowledge to solve problems. Engineers are largely responsible for the innovations developed in each generation that help to advance our society.
Math serves as the building block of our everyday lives and can be found all around us. Widely recognized to be the logical foundations of our universe, it is the study of logic, quantity and arrangement.
Entrepreneurship is not just the willingness to start a business, but embodies the full responsibilities of developing, organizing and managing the entire venture from risk to profit. Yet, few realize the skills required for high achievement as an entrepreneur are also essential for success in STEM careers.
Unlocking the potential of STEM education.
The STEMpreneur operates Virginia's premier Mobile STEM Lab, offering hands-on learning experiences for kids and adults alike. With its state-of-the-art technology and engaging curriculum, The STEMpreneur is the perfect way to immerse learners in the world of science, technology, engineering and math.
The STEMpreneur is a leading STEM organization dedicated to providing innovative educational initiatives. Through our pipeline approach, we train teachers and teacher-candidates by providing critical exposures that improve classroom delivery and support maintaining and/or attaining licensure. We invite you to read more about our projects to learn how we are transforming the future of education.
OUR APPROACH TO PROBLEM SOLVING
We provide a unique structure that utilizes science and math as the foundation and engineering, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship as the pillars. With society as the roof, our program provides a holistic approach to STEM education.
We offer a variety of resources that help to cultivate creativity and problem solving skills to help our students thrive in the world of STEM. Our goal is to inspire and empower the next generation of scientists, engineers, and innovators.
The STEMpreneur has been leading the way in STEM pathways, success, and programming for K-12 and college students, as well as professional development. We invite you to explore our recent projects and see what we have to offer!
At the primary grade levels, the focus of education is fostering a passion for learning and exploration in each young learner. For this purpose, The STEMpreneur partners with the Museum of Science, Boston, to deliver their award winning Engineering is Elementary curriculum. These units introduce students to the broad world of science and engineering in a way they can directly relate to their own worlds. At the middle school and high school levels, TSP builds upon the primary foundations through the introduction of entrepreneurial and business concepts, as well as leadership development training. This dynamic approach expands learners’ minds to consider the possibilities, whether they are moving into industry or planning to create the next paradigm shift.
One of the biggest concerns in education is the alarming attrition rates of new teachers being experienced across the country. In response, The STEMpreneur leans into the proper preparation of new teachers by helping develop critical skills for teacher-candidates (collegiate students pursuing careers in education). These teacher-candidates are trained by the TSP team of experienced educators and STEM practitioners, then paired with instructional coaches who support their growth as they deliver student programming. Through this approach, the teacher-candidates connect with the demographic of students they may have in their future classrooms, gain familiarity with nationally recognized curriculum that meets national standards, and build both confidence and competence in their ability to be successful, all in a safe, exploratory settling.
STEM is about application, not rote memorization. The best way to deliver a STEM lesson is to create a classroom environment of “organized chaos.” The STEMpreneur delivers evidence-based, high-quality professional developments for educators with the expressed intent to help them develop a deeper understanding of STEM content, the intersectionality of the core subject areas and create an environment of exploratory learning for students. Through a curated process that ties classroom management, content mastery and equitable learning practices, teachers explore how to provide their students with the courage to think critically and ideate new ways to solve old problems, all the while failing forward.
Our Community Partners for STEM share our vision of providing innovative solutions to help children learn and thrive. We are proud to collaborate with them to provide flexible, tailored solutions that meet our learners where they are. Our partners focus on providing the best educational supports and resources for children, teachers and parents. Through these partnerships, we are able to open up a wealth of learning opportunities for scholars, ensuring they have exactly what they need to reach their full potential.
