Want to engage all K-5 learners in STEM?
You need to tell stories.
CreositySpace creates 3D curriculum modules that translate the personal stories and technology discoveries of today's young entrepreneurs to help elementary teachers integrate STEM concepts into every class and make STEM current, real and relatable to young minds.
“This kind of program is just what is called for with the new common core; students are given some brief background material and then asked to apply and think about what they have been presented."
– Seth Cohen, Science Coordinator, Troy Central School District
Inspiring a Generation of Dreamers, Innovators, & Entrepreneurs
CreositySpace wants to inspire a generation of dreamers, innovators, and entrepreneurs by connecting kids to entrepreneurs and innovators at a time when they ask, "What do I want to do when I grow up?" We believe that introducing kids to “cool” ideas and technologies that engage their natural curiosity and creativity in elementary school will draw more students to the world of STEM, show them how STEM is a part of their everyday life, and increase the number of STEM-knowledgeable graduates.

Our in-school platform keeps science current and real for kids, while introducing them to the broad array of career opportunities companies and products using STEM in their communities and state.
CreositySpace activity and materials are standards based, aligned with Common Core (ELA & Math), New York State and Next Generation Science Standards. Different than most STEM enhancement programs, CreositySpace materials are intended to be delivered across all subjects, tying together ELA, math, science, engineering and social studies.
The format is simple, fun, and gives kids a platform to:
CreositySpace has spent the last four years developing its materials through collaboration with teachers and students in third, fourth and fifth grade classrooms across the Capital Region of New York. Our expanded pilot in Averill Park, Bethlehem, St. Jude the Apostle, Mohonasen, Schodack, and Troy have enabled us to generate exciting and age appropriate lesson plans.
