Connecting Industry to Every Classroom

For decades many of us have been involved in discussions about creating opportunities for all students to gain exposure to the real world. We have spent hundreds of hours brainstorming with companies, universities, non-profits, chambers of commerce, technology councils and the likes to bridge the gap between industry and education. The reality is the teacher in the classroom still does not have the tools or the time to invite guest speakers or project mentors, organize field trips or develop films and videos. Most companies find it difficult to scale education outreach due to geographic and curriculum barriers. Rural school districts are left out because they lack access to a diverse industry in their local area.

Nepris came out of a real need we heard from educators, industry leaders, professionals and community partners alike, to reduce the barriers between industry and education. Our core mission: Making industry engagement part of the everyday classroom by empowering teachers to engage students in STEAM!

With Nepris, teachers don't have to spend endless hours and time outside of the classroom to recruit and plan for guest speakers. By facilitating virtual connections, Nepris effectively removes student barriers to access while providing companies the opportunity to efficiently and effectively extend their education outreach efforts
