As a curriculum development company, we don’t just choose to randomly create a course.  We identify what courses are missing in high schools and what careers are on the rise.  Then we find industry professionals and teachers to collaborate to develop a course that is easy to teach and engaging to students, while preparing them for the workforce. 

But sometimes, we see that a course taught in most high schools needs a major, revolutionary type change.  We know web design is taught in almost every high school, but their old methods aren't preparing students for the "real world".  We need to change that and are asking for help!

STEM Fuse is announcing the start of their Kickstarter campaign that will allow for the development of cutting edge Drupal based web design curriculum that can be donated to every U.S. high school. STEM Fuse is also pledging extensive initial, and ongoing, teacher training on this technology.

“The training is absolutely the critical piece here”, says STEM Fuse founder Carter Tatge. According to Tatge “our teachers are given the impossible task of trying to keep up on ever changing technology while handling the day-to-day tasks of running a class room. They can’t do it and the result is that we have U.S. schools teaching extremely important technical skills like web design on obsolete technology. 

This Kickstarter campaign allows us to mobilize the technology sector in general, and more specifically the Drupal community, to help make a huge impact on U.S. education and therefore the future of the industry and the nation as well.”

Check out our Kickstarter campaign and if you’re so inclined, make a donation!  You’ll be handsomely rewarded!
