Children should enjoy discovering and exploring their talents and interests at their own pace & ability, not confined by or limited to their districts, schools, or grade levels. There is a fundamental education system incompatibility all around the world. Our schools work on 19th-century principles and simply cannot function effectively in the 21st-century. Perfecting their obsolescence will not make them less obsolete. We need an entirely new paradigm. Fortunately, the 21st-century provides exactly that. The tremendous forces of innovation buffeting the world, if effectively channeled, have more than enough power to transform our education system into exactly the vibrant tool we need.
Bring on the Learning Revolution!
EDNova Academy aims to nurture a new wave of STEM leaders, critical thinkers, and problem-solvers. We seek to provide rising and highly achieving 5-12th grade students the best opportunities to live STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) at the fullest. Our 36-week STEM-BASED MATH.STEM.MAKE program offers advanced MATH, STEM, and Project-Based Learning (PBL) during the academic year. All our courses aim to expose our Academy students to advanced ideas, interdisciplinary thinking, and new ways of problem-solving. Our program is carefully designed by domain experts to stimulate active learning through immersion. This powerful learning experience happens almost by stealth because our students are having too much fun figuring out how things work to realize that they are actually engaging in serious learning. It is extremely exciting to see how much they can accomplish in just 36 weeks.
“Our task is to educate their (students) whole being so they can face the future. We may not see the future, but they will and our job is to help them make something of it.” ― Sir Ken Robinson

“The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it’s to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they’re valued.” ― Sir Ken Robinson
“We as educators know that learning is a lifelong process. Project-Based Learning (PBL) is awesome in that it provides students with hands-on experience learning all the vital skills required to be successful in life. These skills include critical thinking, teamwork, planning, organizing, and time management. It also allows them the opportunity to discover and try new things and possibly find their niche in life. But most of all it provides the foundation for their becoming positive contributing members of society with a clearer view of their interest and capabilities. The use of technology and hands-on application will solidify what they learn in theory by analyzing, synthesizing, and actually applying what they learn in real-world settings.” ― Wyvonne L.
