At its core, ConvergEd, LLC is a framework for integrating research-based learning experiences into education for students of all ages. ConvergEd, LLC (ConvergEd) trains and enables professional educators and school systems in Science Research Institute (SRI) methods that serve as an educational philosophy rather than strictly a physical program. The foundation of the SRI educational philosophy empowers students in their own education, providing a structure for the students to bring their own creativity and innovation to their work right from the beginning. Educators will learn to integrate skills-based and authentic learning experiences to engage their students. ConvergEd will serve educators to advance student laboratory and research skills as well as literacy, communication and entrepreneurial thinking by starting their own SRI.
Educators that complete the ConvergEd training and certification can become Science Research Institute Directors and start SRI chapters in their own schools. Learn more about educator training.
