edacity is all about creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurialism in STEM. We focus on breaking down the barriers that prevent students from embracing these fields and make it our mission to foster a belief that everyone can be innovative.
To us, edacity is a way of thinking – it’s seeing the problems in the world and coming up with unique solutions; it’s thinking critically about science and society; and it’s challenging the status quo.
With this in mind, edacity is curriculum-aligned course resources to help teachers bring entrepreneurship into the classroom for their Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) and Career and Technology Studies (CTS) classes. We connect students with experienced mentors who share their passion and drive to change the world. Through these immersive experiences that promote meaningful and authentic exploration of various occupational areas, students develop critical thinking and come to understand what it means to be “innovative.”
Through edacity, students build skills in critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, collaboration, managing information, cultural and global citizenship, creativity and innovation, and personal growth and well-being. Skills are reinforced through unique learning opportunities and connections to various community innovators across multiple career clusters.
