The benefits of bringing dynamic K-12 education to schools are numerous, including improved brand reputation and the ability to connect with your community. But any educational outreach program comes with its own challenges. How can your organization clearly demonstrate ROI? How can you efficiently invest time and labor to develop a top-notch program? Maybe most importantly, how can you find an experienced, innovative educational content vendor to partner with?
With 40 years of experience in developing premium educational programs, NTC has learned how to solve these problems and pioneer community outreach for organizations like yours. We’ve worked with some of the largest companies in the US, reaching thousands of kids each year with programs that make a lasting impact.
Since its humble beginnings in a Minneapolis apartment in 1978, NTC has grown to become the premier provider of educational content in the country. Since our first tour, over 30 million students have attended our programs – not to mention educators and students’ families, resulting in almost immeasurable community outreach.
Our program offerings have grown since then, too. Through web development, video production, gamification strategies and print materials such as graphic novels, student playbooks, teacher guides and more, we’re able to engage students through active participation and a variety of creative formats.
The backbone of our programs, though, has always been the live in-school performances, in which NTC’s professional instructors provide a shared experience that inspires students through humor and imagination. When your organization brings positive messages to schools through dynamic stories and colorful characters, its ability to connect to the community is supercharged.
The best way to understand the power of our programs is to see them in action. Check out the video excerpt above, which features BrainSTEM – a performance for middle schoolers. BrainSTEM teaches the importance of STEM through a series of comedic sketches that feature improvisation from the actors, audience participation and direct interaction with student volunteers.
While the video can’t match the energy and enthusiasm of a live event among a group of students, it does give a taste of how NTC can help take your organization’s educational outreach to the next level.
