Fostering STEM Excellence

Some argue that understanding science, engineering, and math and the technologies that emerge from them is no longer a negotiable for 21st century economic success. STEM literacy is a requirement for all. Our goal, vision, and values help to share our perspective.

Our Goal

Ti2's goal is to achieve STEM education excellence through inspired teaching, inquiry-based learning, and hands-on innovating. Why? Understanding how/why science, engineering, and technology will continue to transform young people's lives will make them at home in a world that we can only imagine. The creative and critical thinking skills young people hone through this learning ensures their ability to anticipate changes, adapt to them, if not invent their drivers. Why? They internalize an enduring joyful learning mindset. 

Our Vision and Values

Confirmed by research and experience, Ti2's guiding principles are:

  • Successful teaching and learning is a reciprocal learning experience, guided by mutual respect and inspired by curiosity.
  • Achieving effective learning involves understanding cognitive development and variations in learning style. Curriculum development and implementation need to reflect this awareness.
  • Demanding curriculum can and should be rewarding for all students. Children are far more capable than typically acknowledged.
  • Bright, confident and successful young people are our legacy and their futures are our responsibility.

A joyful learning process and environment fosters our goal and aligns with our guiding principles. We recognize that joyful learning creates the strongest bonds between learning and achievement. We believe that it results in an enduring drive to explore, create and innovate.

We believe in your children.

At Ti2, we are stewards of your child’s curiosity. Honored by this privilege and responsibility, we engage young people in inquiry-based science and engineering learning to develop and deepen their creative and critical thinking skills. This process facilitates the drive to explore, create and innovate.
