The aim of Futures.Build is to provide an innovative and educational platform for exchanging ideas on the many issues that face our local, state and global communities in preparing students for a life of purpose and significance. It is our hope that this website will enable everyone to better understand the lasting impact Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) can provide students to connect purposefully within their community and be the agents of change. Collectively we have identified three elements integral to advocating and influencing this goal in the areas of education, ministry, corporate connections and government .
Learning: This website is designed to promote the STEM movement that is being embraced globally. Together we are building a structured process of setting research agendas and, through the informal connections of our organizations, facilitating innovation and experimentation in ways we would be unable to achieve independently.
Influencing: We believe students hold the solutions to make our world a better place but lack avenues in communicating their thoughts or collaborating with others in a meaningful dialogue . This website is intended to be a small step in developing a larger platform to ask and debate how to best create opportunities for students to design sustainable solutions to real world challenges . Sharing: We believe that in diversity we find strength. There is much to be gained from sharing experiences, ideas and resources. This collaborative effort allows us to interact in ways that can influence ideas to shape outcomes at local, state and global levels.
The world we prepare our students for is not a fixed point, it is an ever-evolving, elusive target that only those capable of recreating themselves will be ready to endure. kids will only learn this trait by seeing it modeled.
