“We decided to break away from the traditional model and create a learning platform that would offer both learners and teachers a fun, engaging, authentic, and innovative option to really experience science from a relatable, authentic hand-on perspective.”

WHAT SETS US APART…

We believe that learning cannot take place without purpose and meaning

As students, how many times did we question what the practical purpose of learning the names of every bone in the body was? Which is why most of us don’t know the answer. The problem has always been that there has been a huge gap between learning skills and applying skills. In other words, learners don’t understand how what they are taught can relate to the reality of their context. This is why we place a strong emphasis on learning tools that are both relatable to the learner’s context and practical across different disciplines.

We provide tool for teachers to become guides to discovery and learning
The traditional concept of being a teacher, has become obsolete in today’s world. Hence, we provide a way for teachers to transition from the traditional view of them being the sole source for finding knowledge and answers, to becoming leaders that provide self-guided learning and discovery experiences that not only make learning enjoyable and meaningful but also contribute to the development of higher-level thinking skills!

Our learning solutions not only provide the opportunity for students to explore, struggle, persevere and collaborate to find solutions to real problems using scientific knowledge and principles, but also for teachers to create effective learning environments through the
development activities that stimulate problem solving skills.

We create the opportunity for a learner centered environment
We understand that one of the main problems with traditional education models is that teachers teach a lot, but students don’t learn much. Real learning takes place in a safe environment where students can explore, try, succeed and most importantly… fail and learn from their mistakes. That encourages them to rethink, retest and find ways to overcome hurdles and find the solutions to real problems using Science principles. This is why we have designed our whole pedagogical model to encourage student-centered learning to allow for collaborative work, investigation, reflection and discovery among others.

We understand that development of cross cutting skills is key to success in the
XXI Century.

The success of our learners depends on us providing them with the tools to become creative thinkers to be able to overcome seemingly unsurmountable problems by addressing issues from different perspectives, and using skills acquired from other disciplines. This is where STEAM education comes into play (Science, Technology, Engineering, art and Math). This in turn leads to the empowerment of what is known as divergent thinking. Our learning solutions provide the tools for teachers to encourage learners to apply all skills from other disciplines to explore, test, fail and push through challenges in a safe environment. Ultimately, they will be able to succeed in the real world, with the knowhow to collaborate on diverse projects with all kinds of people by bringing initiative, diverse knowledge, practical skills, and most importantly… innovation from their own creative vision.
