When we facilitate professional development events, there’s often a common theme: teachers understand the importance of active STEM teaching and learning, but don’t always know how to implement it in a way that supports the diverse needs of their students. In our work with TGR EDU: Explore, a partnership between TGR Foundation and Discovery Education, we provide guidance to educators on how to prepare students for success through active, engaging instruction.
As kids grow up, they’re faced with the increased responsibility on how to make healthy choices. It starts with little decisions, like picking out an after-school snack, or which sport they want to play, and eventually leads to bigger decisions like college or a career path.

But right now, young people across the U.S. are facing an incredibly consequential life decision with little or no helpful information to guide them, and sometimes even with disinformation.
