- We offer a range of professional development opportunities — from a comprehensive one-week immersion to one-day workshops and seminars.
- TGR EDU: Create trains 200 high school counselors biennially.
- 94% of educators who participated in our professional development program, STEM Studio, reported increased confidence in delivering powerful STEM activities to students.

TGR EDU: Create Participants
Through their participation in TGR EDU: Create’s weeklong training immersion, two passionate educators, Adam Kelley and Melinda Steele, used the Engineering Design Process to facilitate new project-based learning. The elementary school STEM teachers effectively collaborated with teachers from various schools and disciplines to take their curriculum to a whole new level by incorporating strategies gained throughout the week.
"The engineering process of TGR EDU: Create provides learning opportunities for both teachers and their students. Implementing the Ask, Plan, Create and Improve concepts in the classroom would significantly benefit any educator and drive his/her students to further excel."
