Connecting Students with Community Leaders Launching New Learning and Leadership Tools
First pioneered at Harvard University, business partners serve as real world guides as students learn by using the Socratic method. Characterized by answering the question “why”, students are asked to solve a real problem developed by a community, business or arts partner. Determining the primary challenge, reviewing alternatives, performing research, working in teams, doing analysis, discussing opportunities and presenting solutions are the essential learning methods.
PIE has had tremendous success bringing together STEM educators + business leaders in developing new hands on experiences driving critical thinking, talent identification and career readiness skills.
