Get them ready
Your kids need STEM, and our world needs your kids!
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)–brought on by advancements in automation, artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D-printing, and other emerging technologies–will transform businesses and labor markets, with enormous change predicted in the skills needed to thrive in a 21st-century economy.
47% of present-day jobs will disappear or completely transform in the next few years according to the Oxford University future of employment study.
Without STEM experiences, our kids will be “well educated” but useless in a 21st-century economy, according to Yuval Noah Harari. Let’s get them ready with STEM!
At-home STEM learning solutions for your kids
As a national community, we are venturing into an unknown future when so much in life feels out of our control—including our children’s education. It’s time to take control!
Give your kids online experiences that will improve their future and change the world for the better: give them online STEM experiences.
Help your children discover what they want to do in life. Expose them to new career opportunities. Let them discover what they really love. Ignite their passion that will help them shoot forward in life.
What is STEM?
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math,
but it encompasses so much more.
We have reached a moment in time where STEM is not set apart from the world, but rather influences every aspect of our education, work, and community life. — STEM Connector
The future competitiveness of the United States in an increasingly interconnected global economy depends on the nation fostering a workforce with strong capabilities and skills in STEM. — The National Academy of Sciences
STEM experiences are what our kids need now, to be successful tomorrow.
STEM experiences expose children to 21st-century skills in a project-based, integrated way. Not only will your child master technical skills, but they’ll also learn life-changing soft skills such as:
|• Problem-solving||• Creativity|
|• Problem-finding||• Communication|
|• Perseverance||• Curiosity|
|• Leadership||• Collaboration|
|• Failing successfully||• Confidence|
|• Adaptability||• Critical thinking|
The Power of STEM
Give your children a competitive advantage. With STEM they’ll master skills few other children ever acquire, giving them a leg up on future competition.
Children immersed early in STEM experiences are less likely to develop self-defeating ideas about their abilities. They experience success in STEM before they think they can’t.
Ready your children now with STEM experiences that teach them how to learn new technologies. In the fast-changing future, people who can adapt quickly will move ahead.
78% of high school graduates do not meet the national benchmark readiness standards in STEM subjects.
3 million+ STEM-related jobs will go unfilled by 2028.
47% of jobs will be transformed or eliminated due to automation and artificial intelligence.
Gaps in our children’s education
Our school systems are struggling to evolve our kids’ STEM education to fit the 21st-century world due to antiquated state and federal educational policies. Graduates are ill-equipped to meet the STEM job needs and to address the complex STEM problems of tomorrow.
Critical gaps, including fundamental skills, incorrect beliefs of STEM traits, and disproportionate STEM participation from girls, students of color, and urban and rural students contribute to the growing demand to better prepare ALL students to meet the needs and demands of the STEM workforce and the overall workforce of the future.
If ALL students aren’t prepared to fill the present and future gaps, our society’s future will be in crisis. THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW.
We can fill the gaps together
That’s where TechTrep comes in
TechTrep works with students, parents, schools, and communities to develop and provide comprehensive STEM education initiatives.
We take the burden off of parents and school districts by providing online, in-school, after-school, and out-of-school (at-home or in the community) STEM experiences for students five years and older.
Online STEM experiences are project-based, self-paced, personalized (you choose your experience), engaging, and supported by a live STEM mentor.
The at-home STEM solution for your child
Across the country, our children are being taught 20th-century skills using 19th-century pedagogy for an accelerating 21st-century global economy. Cultivating the 21st-century workforce demands all students be provided multiple STEM experiences early in their development and through their high school journey.
TechTrep partners with you to ‘future-proof’ your kids for 21st-century STEM-based opportunities by providing access to STEM experiences for all kids at an early age. All kids, means ALL KIDS!
Our STEM courses and learning resources align with national and international standards (ISTE, STL, NGSS). We engage students in important STEM concepts, ignite student creativity and curiosity, and elevate kids’ futures.
Student licenses include a full year of anywhere-anytime access and enrollment in our online platform, a personal online mentor, built-in lessons, and a 14-day money-back or course-swap guarantee.
With recent events and school closures, we are committed to giving ALL kids access to enriching STEM experiences at affordable prices and in multiple ways.
Anytime and anywhere access to the built-in lessons enable parents/guardians to be involved as much or as little as circumstances allow.
Fun and Engaging
Our STEM experiences cater to your child’s interests and keep them learning.
Personalized and Self-Paced
Experiences are designed to allow kids to move at their own pace and complete projects based on their interests.
Mentors support children through their experience, answering questions, encouraging STEM-learning practices, and grading assignments as needed.
Variety of STEM experiences
The STEM platform exposes kids to more than just robotics and coding. They can focus their learning in an area that interests them: business, entrepreneurship, digital media, financial literacy, animation, graphic arts, programming, gaming, engineering, and rocketry.
Learn new skills
Not only will they learn a tech skill, but more importantly, they’ll learn how to learn a new technology.
