The Past Foundation hosted the STEM & Spirits Carnival fundraiser this past Saturday night. Thanks to John Paull for hooking us up for a fun night. Here's a bit more about what they do (info from their site):
PAST’s Innovation Lab is an educational R&D prototyping facility, located in Columbus, Ohio. PAST partners with K12 schools, post-secondary institutions, as well as industry and community partners, designing and researching new and innovative programs that deliver rigorous and relevant education. PAST’s immersive student programs include the Hybrid Teaching Model and Learning Labs that blur the line between coursework and workforce development alongside informal bridge programs that accelerate STEM experiences after and out of school. PAST professional development works with administrators and teachers providing effective tools and training for transforming education, bringing transdisciplinary problem-based learning into classrooms. Integrated into all PAST programs is evidence-based research that continuously informs design and prototyping.
