Our projects and research shape the STEM education field by introducing innovative curricula and improving student access to STEM.
We support more than 60 active projects every year, and our high-quality, innovative research is based on the understanding that for STEM, real-world application matters. We inspire, motivate, and create life-long learners by helping students connect what they are taught in the classroom to the world around them.
These projects and our research are designed to encompass a wide range of subjects and disciplines within STEM education and teaching methods to expand accessibility for all eager minds.
