In our organization we need to build rapport within seconds to create success. We need to understand children and how to create strategies that will allow them to learn differently than before. We need to be fun, funny and actually not sugar coat anything. There is a lot riding on our ability to inspire but that is our mission every day. In simple terms, unlike any other science product developed before it Scientist Trading Cards (STC) is making a dramatic and immediate change in the way science is taught and learned.
We figured out that children need to understand science, scientists and science careers so we created a revolutionary curriculum enhancing product. It is called Scientist Trading Cards. Kids know trading cards. They play with sports cards like baseball and football. They trade cards with classics like Pokemon and Magic – The Gathering. Scientist Trading Cards have all of these elements – a set of 250 cool and hip scientists that they won’t recognize at first because they were never taught that architects, electricians, inventors and chefs are scientists. Besides the cards we offer 50 fun, simple, hands-on science experiments online and 10 science games that they can play with their entire family or at school. Now, for the first time they will get the essential information about people who are making a huge difference and aspiring all of us to have better and richer lives. For the first time they can look up to someone important rather than wondering if it is more important to become a celebrity. And, for the first time they can play and learn with a product that will enhance skills for a lifetime. During our 2017 summer season we ran 50 week long camps and from it our children participants were so excited about the Scientist Trading Cards that they responded by researching and then creating over 20,000 of their own hand made famous scientist cards.
