The EAST Class of 2020 - 2021 New Programs Has Been Announced!
Join EAST as we celebrate 14 newly established programs for the 2020 - 2021 academic year. EAST promises to equip each program with the tools necessary to produce the next generation of STEM leaders, business owners, and problem solvers! These new additions expand the EAST network to almost 270 programs that develop students through the use of technology, critical thinking and communication, and service to their communities.
Matt Dozier, president and CEO of EAST shared these thoughts: “There is so much excitement when establishing EAST in new places. It is amazing to watch schools and this year the first formal community-based program, The Generator of Go Forward Pine Bluff, move from interested parties to members of the network. The decision to add EAST is a commitment to innovative change for the student and their community. We are extremely thankful for the continued support of the Office of Governor Asa Hutchinson, the Arkansas Legislature, the Arkansas Department of Education and the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education for making it possible to provide the opportunities that EAST represents."
Each new program receives industry-grade technology, significant professional development for facilitators (teachers who manage the EAST environment) and administrators, access to over 70 specialized student trainings on how to use that technology, and real-world experiences that the students author and execute based on their passions.
