How we teach

Dr. Jim and I have both had incredible experiences with the “project approach” in our own education (in Early Childhood Education and Graphic design for me and  Automotive Engineering, and Applied Molecular Biology for Jim) and we believe that it is the best approach to foster confidence, creativity and complex thought. Children are natural learners, explorers and researchers and this is why our classes are based on open-ended exploration and creative tools. Through project directed learning we teach about specific concepts and technologies. We employ the Scientific method, the Engineering Design process, the Design Thinking Process and the Creative Process as we explore and work on our projects. We strive to implement developmentally appropriate practices as we plan for and interact with our students. Our classes and workshops are classroom and kid tested so we are confident your kiddos will love them.
