HEPH ED INCREDIVERSE creates energized and productive learners and workers for the T.E.A.M.S.-based society of the future.
Let's put the future in their hands
How a kid from Queens, NY
will help change STEM education
The kid was 11; his name was Bert Cambridge. He liked drawing with chalk on sidewalks and hated computers. Steve Conner, future HEPH FOUNDATION founder, showed Bert what he could do with a computer. Twenty-five years later, Bert is an Emmy Award-winning editor. He was the first of over 5000 interns and mentees who Steve inspired to learn technology skills and pursue STEM occupations.
THE NOW AND FUTURE OF WORK
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
There are an estimated 2.4 million STEM jobs that are unfilled. Out of 100 STEM occupations, 93% of them had wages above the national average. Employment in computer occupations is projected to increase by 12.5 percent from 2014 to 2024
WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW THIS?
67% of all students lose interest in STEM by tenth grade. They won’t be ready for the future.
Our curriculums are so engaging, students never want to stop learning.
We teach learners using tools they love:
Video games, sports, music, social media, dance, fashion, comics, and engaging experiences - we teach students where they live. We help them find pathways to their future.
This is math class
INCREDICAMP MATH, READING AND ENGINEERING SUMMER SCHOOL WORKING IN A SIMULATOR PROGRAM
We're in school
We partner with schools, teachers, PTOs, and community organizations, to deliver standards–aligned STEM curricula designed to engage and empower learners. Each program includes high-quality activity kits that provide hands-on, project-based learning experiences to inspire creativity, build confidence, and spark dreams for future paths. It’s not purely fun and games though: we integrate science and mathematics concepts into design-based learning engineering practices that will help students succeed in school and beyond. The results are stunning.
We’re there after school
Over 40% of our after-school program attendees improve their reading and math grades to help them succeed in school. STEM classes help students to acquire the computational thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for all professional careers.
75% of our summer school students showed improvements in math and reading. We also achieved 90% engagement. Yes-even in summer school!
Online Learning at Home
Our students always ask for more class time. With Heph Ed Incredicamp, learners interact with professional software engineers and coders while learning how to create their own video games, apps, websites, and more. Incredicamp Home offers self-paced instruction with help when learners need it.
Programs outside of school can help children to see that STEM is more than a class to finish. Having activities that show real-life application of STEM can pull together the ideas presented in school and help to show how they benefit our society and even our world as a whole.
