What is EXSEED?

Excellence in STEM Experiential Education (EXSEED) is an innovative and collaborative program designed to enhance integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in Adventist K-12 education in partnership with K-12 and higher education. The goal of EXSEED is to collaboratively support and empower K-12 educators in teaching the STEM disciplines within a Mission-Focused Learning (MFL) context that emphasizes the arts, spirituality, and service.
