What is the mission of FutureGen Education?
The mission of FutureGen Education is to integrate a curriculum around Science, Technologies, Agriculture and Food, and advocate for the curriculum to be hands-on and project-based in a contextual environment.
Our work is underpinned by the work of Lee Crockett. It uses the ‘solution fluency through through six phases: Define; Discover; Dream, Design; Deliver and Debrief. While our work has been focused on Science, Sustainability and Food and Fibre production or Agriculture in education, we first became aware of the “maker movement” in 2016, when developing curriculum resources for National Science Week in schools. It was through this work that we became excited about how the movement was utilizing similar tactics for education reform as we were hoping to aspire to.
We firmly believe that schools need to provide space for students to develop a growth mindset that embodies entrepreneurial thinking, passion, problem solving, creativity, collaboration and embraces critical thinking as an integral part of learning and success.
The values of making: creativity, accepting failure, invention, collaboration, problem solving, critical and creative thinking...these are all skills that we believe should be at the forefront of our educational experiences.
As the world changes around us, we want to see adaptive and collaborative skills over content, and we want to see learning that connects with the human element of thinking and learning. Dive into our learning resources and explore how they support students to become creative and responsive designers, as they make, create and design solutions for real-world contexts.
