Agavi is an adaptive learning platform designed for smartphones that will enable teachers to build innovative new experiences for their students. Teachers will be able to create non-linear activities, track where their students are and how they’re progressing, and interface with the real world via location and sensors to allow for novel activities.

Greenworks is a Global North-South partnership program that teaches students valuable science, leadership, and communication skills via role-playing games and community projects. In this program, students focus on the science of various environmental issues important to their local communities and hone their communication and negotiation skills in a global diplomacy game. To complete their experience, students propose and implement a local project which can include data collection, organizing a community for action, or working for change through their local governance system.

Many scholars globally lack the necessary skills to succeed in an intense academic environment. We offer in-person workshops for academics in the developing world to develop academic skills. Topics covered include the publication process, grant writing, CV development, conferences, teaching, and public outreach.

Science Voices is developing innovative new community events that blend together science, culture, and active learning. This project will become more active once Agavi and Greenworks are operational.
