Iridescent Learning Milestones
Moving children from Builders to Inventors is not an easy task. In our 7 years of exploration in the field,
we have learned that it takes time to learn how to think, be creative, analyze and create something.
Our approach is a three-pronged strategy of teaching cutting edge science, engineering and technology.
We use 3 pillars to structure a child’s learning over the course of many years, deepening learning and changing perceptions of what it takes to become a scientist or engineer.
We feature cutting-edge technology in an engaging story instead of by focusing exclusively on basic science concepts.
What began in one classroom in 2006 is now at work all over the world.
Founded in 2006 by the Aerospace Engineer Tara Chklovski, Iridescent has grown from an informal science education program offered in one school classroom to a global organization that has provided over 80,000 hours of cutting-edge STEM instruction to 22,000 children and parents.
