The revolution has been technological, instructional, and—most significantly—cultural, forever changing the way teachers teach and students learn. First, every middle-school math and science classroom in Sarasota County was overhauled with new technology. Teachers were trained in innovative teaching methods that leveraged that tech and captivated their students. And hundreds of business partners became just that—partners—by sharing real-world experience and opportunities within and beyond school walls.
This science and math transformation was so successful that the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation doubled down and asked Gulf Coast to partner on applying the model to every social studies and English language arts middle-school classroom too.
