Want to make learning come alive in your classroom?

We've been there! Our knowledgeable team of certified teachers are ready to deliver standards-aligned, hands-on learning experiences that support your curriculum.

During our one-hour lessons, students will engage with content in a variety of ways. As they rotate through stations, knowledge and concepts will be cemented.

"The CDM experience was awesome. The kids truly loved it & were very engaged :) We utilize CDM every year & rotate themes."

"The CDM educator did an excellent job! I love how she challenged students to think and explore."

Our outreach lessons serve a variety of learner settings, including K-8 classrooms, homeschool co-ops, out of school time providers, faith-based organizations, scouting troops, clubs, and enrichment or remediation programs.
