Global Partner Schools

We make it easy to globalize the classroom by providing

the tech, the training, the curriculum

and the global partner management.

Our global STEAM courses - offered in school, after school and in the summer - can easily be implemented and made available to every student within a school.

Using our global communication platform, students get to know Global Partner students across the world by exchanging video messages about their lives and their STEAM projects.

As the course moves forward, students ask questions of each other that will help reveal a global issue that directly affects the Global Partner student.

Together, they address this real-life issue by applying their newfound STEAM knowledge and design thinking skills in service of a collaborative, back-and-forth, international project! So they not only develop essential 21st century skills, but do so while making a positive difference in the world - specifically, in the life of their new friend in another country.
