Professional Development

STEM is about application, not rote memorization. The best way to deliver a STEM lesson is to create a classroom environment of “organized chaos.”


  • Evidence-based, high quality professional developments

  • Align with and support National and State Standards

  • Help educators teach more and manage less

  • Empower teachers to help challenging students succeed

  • Merge pedagogy with hands-on application and practice

  • Create equitable learning environments to close achievement gaps
