Acuteminds is unleashing a new approach and creating a national movement to tackle one of our country's most pressing challenges: Giving all kids access to great STEM (or science, technology, engineering, and math) learning by enriching America's classrooms with 100,000 excellent STEM teachers by 2021.
If that sounds ambitious, it's because it needs to be. A task as big as ensuring future generations are equipped with the kind of education they need to solve complex global challenges and excel in a competitive world demands an equally bold response. Acuteminds is that bold response: an expanding network of hundreds of best-in-class partner organizations, each taking on an above-and-beyond piece of work to contribute to the goal of 100,000 excellent STEM teachers. Leveraging the benefits of scale and the agile, problem-solving prowess of a start-up, our unique design accelerates and amplifies our partners' accomplishments and catalyzes their collective capacity to help give all students access to high-quality STEM learning.
