You don't have to be a parent to know that today’s classrooms – like many things over the past two years – are being disrupted. And while emerging technology can provide new opportunities to grow, hands-on education also remains fundamental to the learning process.
SAE International’s Vice President of Programs, Christopher M. Ciuca, has spent his career committed to empowering educators to prepare today’s students to become tomorrow’s innovators.
Ciuca and his team have built award-winning STEM learning programs that are inclusive, engaging, and accessible. And as homes across the globe transitioned into makeshift classrooms, they’re working to create new tools for educators – as well as the family at home – that combine the hands-on with the cutting edge.
Bonnie Thibodeau, SAE’s Pre-College Program Developer, shares the launch of her passion project, The STEM Sagas: Virtually Rerouted. This digital comic book is available free online and has dynamic visuals, relatable characters, and an exciting Computer Science-themed storyline.
As Ciuca and Thibodeau give more families the opportunity to #MeetSAE, they’re learning how to give students the chance to experience, collaborate, and think about ways to move society into the future. All of this is possible with the support of folks like you – volunteering, collaborating, and supporting the SAE Foundation – to fund these initiatives as well as awards and scholarships.
