The
Issue

Unlike other STREAM programs in the market, our products will encompass a comprehensive curriculum of updatable experiences, both virtual and hands-on, that explore scientific concepts at both the macro and micro (cellular and molecular) levels. Redd Technology will create a complementary database, along with its software, that will allow users virtual access to previously unobtainable resources. It will also provide teachers the opportunity to customize their curricula and individualize student learning and assessment according to the level of difficulty, educational level, subject, and type of digital material.
