Mindframe Education Partners with BASIS Independent of McLean

Mindframe Education Partners with BASIS Independent of McLean
Mindframe Education and BASIS Independent McLean Work Together to Address Learning Gaps in STEM.
ASHBURN, VA – April 20, 2017
Mindframe Education, an innovative K-12 learning center, announced a partnership today with BASIS Independent McLean to provide hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programming to rising 1st through 10th graders. Mindframe will offer STEM enrichment classes and camps at BASIS throughout the summer and after school during the school year.  BASIS Independent McLean already places an emphasis on STEM, and is looking to further expand options for students. With Mindframe, BASIS will give students a chance to use cutting-edge tools and technologies on-site. Both organizations see STEM as an integral way to set students up for success in school, college, and beyond.  “We wanted to make the latest and greatest tools and technologies available for our students, and are excited about the hands-on nature of the programming at Mindframe,”says Sean Aiken, BASIS Independent McLean Head of School. “Making their own
animated shorts, creating their own mobile apps, 3D games, and designing their own digital art  these are the kind of things kids love. And they’ll get to do that with these new classes.”
The partnership provides BASIS Independent McLean students with opportunities to learn key STEM skills and prepare them for academic success. It works to get students
thinking about careers as well. “The US Bureau of Labor Statistics tells us that in the last ten years, growth in STEM jobs has been three times greater than non-STEM jobs,” Jyotsna Singh, Mindframe Cofounder, stated. “This effort can play a big part in keeping our kids competitive, not only as they go to high school and college, but as they enter the workforce.”
