September 5, 2017, Sanborn, NY – Studica, Inc. has partnered with The University of Texas at Austin’s UTeachEngineering project to provide schools the technology products required for the Engineer Your World curriculum. UTeachEngineering chose Studica based on their excellent customer service, experience in the education market, and expertise in providing effective STEM education solutions.
Innovative and student-centered, Engineer Your World is a unique high school curriculum that has grown from a pilot offering in seven schools in Texas to over 200 schools in 24 states. Many programs claim to engage students with project based-learning techniques, but this program takes it a step further. By creating an authentic engineering experience, it exposes students to what engineering is, what engineers do and the breadth of engineering processes. It is an affordable, one-year program designed to assist students in their journey to becoming resilient problem solvers. Skills learned will be applicable to a student’s future in engineering, or any pathway they choose.
“We are excited to be working with Studica to provide our schools with a single source to obtain the diverse components and equipment necessary for students to answer the driving questions of each design challenge. Because we work with a wide variety of schools across the US, we needed a supplier who would be both adaptable and affordable. We are confident that Studica will meet these needs.”
