Diversity in science refers to cultivating talent and promoting the full inclusion of excellence across the social spectrum. This includes people from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented and those from backgrounds that are traditionally well represented.

MULTICULTURAL SCIENCE EDUCATION APPROACH

Curriculum, teaching and learning experiences that both honor and challenge students’ cultural knowledge and practices.

STANDARDS-BASED LEARNING

NGSS, ISTE, CCS

“Street Cred”

We partner with and bring together rural/urban/suburban communities to conduct programs for youth.

Seeing Yourself in Science (SYIS)

Equitable opportunities for all students to do quality science

The Problem: Inadvertent segregation in STEM  education
SYIS Solution: Culturally responsive STEM education benefits ALL learners
SYIS Solution: Multimedia for interconnected and boundaryless STEM learning
SYIS Solution: High-quality STEM education that attends to learners’ social-emotional development 

Increased STEM opportunities for youth through the great equalizer—math

The Problem: Differences in math performance by SES, race, and gender

  • SYIS Solution: A strong math emphasis to address the performance gap
  • SYIS Solution: A strong math emphasis—a key predictor of college and career success
  • SYIS Solution: A spatial skills emphasis that addresses the gender difference for girls

What youth are saying about our STEM education programming.

“This is the best thing we’ve done all day. Can you come back for the rest of the program?”

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

 

It is time to use SEL assessments that can work for schools on multiple levels, from the personal level to small groups, classrooms, and whole systems.

SEL EXPERTISE WITH A POSITIVE IMPACT

From Albuquerque to Australia—online and in-person

SEL FROM PRO-SOCIAL BEHAVIOR

To enhanced academic performance to self-care

TOOLS AND COACHING

That take the guesswork out of supporting youth and adults in their SEL

We use SEL tools

designed and delivered with equity and resilience in mind

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

A 30% increase in retention in subsequent education and employment services after opportunity youth complete our Resiliency Training.  

Youth tell it like it is for the targeted support they deserve

Youth tell it like it is for the targeted support they deserve.

The Problem: Failure to support all youth in their social-emotional development

  • SEL Solution:  We begin and end with what’s  wrong strong with kids
  • SEL Solution:  Effective tools to proactively capture youth voice so adults can effectively support their strengths, challenges and needs

Outlook really does determine opportunity

Outlook really does determine opportunity.

The Problem: Millions of “opportunity youth” disconnected from education and employment

  • SEL Solution: Resiliency training increasing education and employment attainment rates
  • SEL Solution: Relevant training by relatable role models for high client satisfaction

We’re trained & certified to use The PEAR Institute’s HSA©= Holistic Student Assessment©,and  Clover©, tools.
