How many schools do you currently serve?

We currently provide our In-School Module-Based (ISMB) STEM enrichment program to 75 schools across Massachusetts, California and Minnesota. We see over 9,000 students every year in our school programs and an additional 10,000 in our outreach efforts! Our SpectacuLAB show in the Epcot® Innoventions Pavilion, located at Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida, has been reaching 8,500 children and families per month.

 

How often do you see these students?

We build strong relationships with classroom teachers, students and school administrators by coming to the school every other week, throughout the entire academic year, to deliver our engaging, hands-on lessons (~18 sessions).

 

How do you pick the schools to provide programming for?

We provide our ISMB program to schools upon request. When a school wants our program for their students, they contact us to be placed on the waitlist. We are working hard to address the many schools on the waitlist so we can provide all students with exciting, hands-on lessons in STEM.

 

Who presents your lessons?

Our engaging, hands-on, frameworks-relevant STEM lessons are presented by our real, charismatic scientists. All of our instructors have an undergraduate degree in a hard science and are, at minimum, enrolled in an advanced STEM degree program. In addition, we ensure that our instructors are charismatic, warm and approachable to students.

 

Where do you get the lessons from?

All of our lessons are developed in house by our Module Team led by our Director of Education, Cortney Wieber. We have a library of over 90 lessons for classroom teachers to choose from to complement their existing classroom curriculum.
