Re-imagine children as competent
thinkers and problem solvers!
We provide high-quality engaging professional learning and family engagement that teaches adults to “see and support” science as it unfolds in their classrooms, homes, and neighborhoods.
Our approach is flexible and aims to be contextually, culturally, and locally relevant to teachers, families and children.
As a result, children are provided opportunities and encouragement to engage in 21st century thinking skills setting them on a strong foundation for life-long learning.
