STEM Forged, a hybridized classroom solution for game design and esports student programs, have received the STEM.org Accreditation™ trustmark. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. “We’re thrilled to be awarded the STEM.org Accreditation,” says Grant Hathaway, Founder and CEO of STEM Forged. “This award is another brick in the wall that validates everything we are doing for our students. Our perspective is very much aligned with that of STEM.org. We have always been geared towards providing students with interdisciplinary, technical knowledge and the wisdom to apply it.”
Founded in 2001, STEM.org Educational Research™ (SER) is the longest continually operating,
privately-held STEM education research and credentialing organization in America. Through
an extensive collaborative effort, SER has worked closely with researchers, an international
coalition of educators, administrators, NGO’s, companies and schools to establish a set of broadly representative STEM benchmarks. The resources and proven best-practices of this initiative have led to the world’s original and most recognized, blockchain-secured and fully decentralized STEM credentialing framework.
