In Their Own Words
Educators and Partners describe the benefits of Case-Based Learning.
PIE Business Partners offer an authentic challenge using STEM K-12 concepts. Each participating school receives devices for all student participants.
Using 1:1 technology, students created an app available across all global platforms, providing significant new revenue for school districts.
Program offers sustainable funding for all program technology, STEM curriculum development and educator professional development.
Program creates a web page and 30-second professional videos featuring case partners, students and educators discussing STEM experiential curriculum, teaching notes and testimonials.
CCHMC has been working with Rockdale students to make healthier nutritional decisions in our urban school environment. This STEM curriculum and the app really accentuates – and authenticates — their work in an educator-friendly way.
