Testimonials

 

"The students were more engaged in learning about engineering. I had to say, ‘That’s enough for now, let’s move on,’ but they kept going on and on about the technology and how it works."

Teacher, Silicon Valley

"I love that the lesson plans are online and the technology is simple for our teachers to use. The curriculum and technology fit right into our current program model."

After-School Curriculum Director, Silicon Valley

“The pedagogy is exceptional. It takes project-based learning, iteration, collaboration, and puts it all together.”

K-12 Math/Science Supervisor, New Jersey

"Design SySTEM is also kinesthetic. For student engagement, it’s doing all the right things. And it connects with teachers through science."
