By eighth grade, nearly 50 percent of all US students lose interest or see STEM as irrelevant to their future, threatening the STEM leader pipeline of tomorrow. Through our partnership with Learning Undefeated we hope to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM that will develop solutions for tomorrow’s challenges.
At Learning Undefeated, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in STEM education. The Breakout Box came out of our ‘start with yes’ leadership approach, where we push ourselves to make STEM education more interactive and personal. Our educators are constantly innovating, energized by creating new and exciting ways to introduce students to all the possibilities that are out there for them.
