What is Einstein Project?
LEADing AND INSPIRing EXCELLENCE AND INNOVATION IN EDUCATION
For over 25 years we have used our history to guide us and we continue to strive to be innovative, influential, and a community resource for all educational institutions. More specifically, we serve public and private schools, school districts, daycare centers, preschools, STEM education community organizations, and post-secondary schools (Colleges and Universities).
At the most basic level, Einstein Project is a resource management center. We provide educators with units filled with materials and standards-aligned curriculum to teach quality, hands-on, science, engineering, and making. We also provide online and in-person professional development for educators, preparing them to teaching inquiry-based curriculum.
Einstein Project's three focus areas:
Coordinating Educator Trainings
Cr eating community partnerships
We offer both science, engineering, and maker kits for the classroom as well as engineering and maker units that can be used in out-of-schools programs. Each unit consists of research-based curriculum that aligns with standards, materials for students, and educator training & resources.
Coordinating Professional Development
We provide educators with training courses to assist them in utilizing the units to their max. Prior to using an Einstein Project unit for the first time, we offer our Science 101 and/or Engineering 101 courses to introduce new educators to our unit materials as well as the inquiry-based learning structure. As educators continue to utilize our units, we provide professional development opportunities that expand educators' general knowledge about science, technology, engineering, math and makerspaces
Promoting STEM in the Community
We enrich our community with STEM experiences through our events, which are also fundraisers for our nonprofit. One of our largest events is the annual STEM Expo. We also host the annual Dine for Einstein event, in which we partner with local restaurants as a fundraiser and more importantly an awareness event. Our events are a great way for us to get the community directly involved in our mission.
