Quest4Earth - STEAM powered workshops focusing on environmental science, stewardship & justice.
MindRap - STEAM pioneer using culturally specific pedagogy to encourage interest in the sciences.
MindRap is Tiz Media Foundation’s premier program and one of the first STEAM programs in the country.
The program begins by describing to students what they will be doing and explaining what they are expected to accomplish. They are then organized into teams. After a lesson on the social and emotional skills that one needs to work successfully in teams, students begin their multi-disciplinary journey by participating in engaging and interactive science or math lessons delivered by certified teachers. The lessons are followed by presentations by a series of MindRap consultants. These presentations are based on, and designed to extend, the math or science lessons.
QUEST 4 EARTH
Quest 4 Earth is a TMF environmental awareness initiative that uses MindRap methodology to teach environmental science and justice. With climate change responsible for many issues that will impact our future generations todays youth need to be scientifically rooted to meet the challenges. In Quest 4 Earth workshops they learn about environmental issues and how science can help them face those challenges. Using a STEAM platform youth transform what they learn into media that can help teach others. Funded by donations and grants Quest 4 Earth workshops are currently running in Evanston Illinois.
