Our CTLE-certified professional development training programs help inspire teachers to incorporate STEAM and constructivist approaches into their standards-based lessons and provide tools for a culturally responsive approach to the curriculum. Our curriculum, exhibits, and educational approach are unique by design, developed to spark inventive solutions, build confidence by embracing the “fail forward” concept, and foster teamwork through hands-on workshops and activities that pose challenges with multiple outcomes or solutions. Teachers learn how to foster engagement through hands-on challenges that explore the engineering design process, encourage teamwork, incorporate career and civic awareness, showcase a diverse representation in the STEM field, and incorporate elements of environmental awareness.

Our distinctive challenge-based programs are built on New York State Science Learning Standards, New York State English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards, and the National Core Arts Standards.
