Access ASSET ensures that all students benefit from highly-effective educators
and high-quality learning tools by providing no-cost training & learning materials.
Too many educators are unable to access the training and instructional materials they need to prepare all students for a future that is increasingly dependent on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This contributes to a STEM achievement gap, with students in under-served communities and students of color falling behind their peers. Access ASSET helps provide every learner with skilled, confident educators and research-based, hands-on materials.
“Our district serves a large group of students from low-income families,
including many families that lack higher education. These students often
never hear about the opportunities in STEM careers. Many of our students
could end up in low-paying jobs in the service industry unless they are
exposed to and trained for better jobs.” -Teacher
IN THE PAST FOUR YEARS:
RECIPIENT PROFILE: WHO DOES ACCESS ASSET IMPACT?
“I was visiting our fourth grade class that was working on electric circuits, and I made a comment about
the light bulb, wire and battery they were using for an activity. The students and teacher quickly corrected my use of the term ‘battery,’
and instead informed me it was a ‘cell.’ The instruction from this type of activity and the appropriate use of terms
not only enriches the learning of the students through hands-on activities, but also prepares them to transfer
that learning outside of the school setting, as shown in our state testing data.”
