What We Believe

The Pearl Project Logo

Our nation and the global community demands citizens that can design innovative solutions to complex problems. We believe it is our duty to nurture youth that exhibit the ability to think analytically while addressing local, national, and global issues of our time.

The Pearl Project Institute for Innovation in STEM Literacy has created an environment designed to deconstruct the elements of thinking while constructing the building blocks of STEM Literacy.

We believe, like the waves in the ocean, there are certain characteristics of STEM Literate citizens which are powerful enough to impact a global society. These 6 waves found in our logo represent a growth mindset, 8 elements of thought, and the design thinking process
