• Not Just A Textbook, A Toolbox! STEAM Project Based Learning for all ages

Teachers, Parents, Students (TPS) – We believe that students learn best by doing! Use our STEAM programs to inspire children to lead; let them design, assess, plan, implement and communicate.
We are all different and STEAM programs are inclusive. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, English, Arts, Mathematics. Using tactile and visual building projects, students of all ages can learn.

TPS provide a toolbox of components to allow teachers to choose the best tools for their students. Why STEAM?
Do you have struggling students who fail to master core subject content and find examinations really difficult? Do you have gifted and advanced students who need to be challenged?
A major goal of the TPS programs is to help alleviate the inequities that have prevented many children and youths from mastering ELAR. TPS wish to support schools and districts to implement high quality, cross curricula, relevant, and engaging ELAR content and pedagogy, to ensure that classrooms are inclusive and exciting for all students. TPS focuses on every student, regardless of background or learning characteristics, being able to access and be inspired by STEAM learning opportunities.

  • Collaboration leads to success

At TPS, the partnership of teachers, parents and students is our priority. We create personalized programs to suit your needs.

Diversity is our focus. TPS provide multiple STEAM projects to suit learners from all diverse backgrounds.

Mathematics is everywhere. Real-life scenarios bring enlightenment to students. Make mathematics real. When making your program choice STEAM Makes Sense: Peer reviewed research suggests that;
Building in opportunities in STEM classes to develop and use the principles, skills and ingenuity of the arts can “serve as an on-ramp for STEM success for underrepresented students. Engaging students’ strengths using art activities increases motivation and the probability of STEM success,” by “offering more diverse learning opportunities and greater access to STEM for all types of learners” (Jolly 2014).
