Vision and Mission

K12Nest strives to ensure science gets its due credit in schools. As educators, STEM professionals, and parents, we believe there should be no gap between “those who know” and “those who don't know” science and technology. STEM should not be mysterious to any student and should be as commonplace in schools as sports. We believe it's essential for the future of society that access to STEM education be fully democratized and accessible to anyone, regardless of social, economic, or language barriers.

Through Ecos we are ensuring that school children from anywhere and from any background have access to the tools they need to realize their full potential and contribute to society in the 21st century.

With Ecos, we bring fresh, state-of-the-art STEM content into classrooms that might otherwise not be accessible to teachers. With Ecos, we change how STEM education happens.
