About us

EducationProjects.org was founded by two veteran teachers with a deep desire to inspire students.

An unprompted conversation with an agriculture industry executive who wanted consumers to understand more about their business was the spark that started the company. The executive wanted to know “how can we use soybeans to help students understand the science of modern farming?” and the resulting brainstorm of ideas was the launch of our company.

20 years later, our work starts with the needs of industry and moves into the classroom. We have a unique formula which is informed by our staff of experienced teachers who understand how to present material to young students and relate to the challenges of teaching.
