At Activate Learning, we believe there is a better way to engage students in STEM

Engage students with authentic learning and phenomena that are relevant and meaningful.

With our programs, student engagement comes from actively doing and making sense of science and mathematics. Students investigate and explain phenomena, gather and analyze data, develop and use visual models, and solve multi-step problems. They develop important life skills as they work collaboratively in groups and explore individually with technology supports. Our programs help students to articulate their thinking, critique the reasoning of others, and persevere in completing rich tasks and tackling complex problems.

Inspire teachers with research-based curricula that support three-dimensional learning.

Our programs fuel the passion of our teachers. Educators are actively guiding students through rigorous science and mathematics investigations. Our comprehensive teacher resources provide the necessary content, structure, and supports. We provide videos for lesson preparation, just-in-time access to instructional materials, embedded guides to orchestrate each investigation, and technology supports to efficiently evaluate student work and provide personalized feedback.

Prepare students for STEM careers of tomorrow.

Our programs offer investigation-centered and project-based learning that allow students to drive their learning through their own questions and ideas. The learning skills and science concepts that students explore and practice prepare them to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. This translates into young adults willing and able to question the world around them and lead innovation.
