How to Drive Growth Using STEM Panels

Announcing Your Curated Panel of STEM Advisors

STEM Panels ignite product insights for product and market development teams.

Two of the smartest questions EdTech companies ask are, “How do we innovate when educator needs are rapidly changing?” and “Who can we trust to provide feedback?” We have learned over the years that the answers are simple, but not easy.

“How do we innovate when educator needs are rapidly changing?”

In fact, answers are difficult to uncover. These hard questions are the ones my colleague, Rita Ferrandino, Founding Partner of Arc Capital, and I love to solve for our clients. What we have discovered is that the same science and engineering practices defined in the Framework for Science Education can be used to test and explore your business hypotheses.

It all starts with listening to the voices that count: educators.

STEM education companies need to rely on the right voices, at the right time. Product developers and marketers also worry about cognitive bias when their research goes DIY or when stakeholders are purposeful and passionate about research outcomes. Stretched on time and a needing world-class go-to-market team, STEM businesses turned to us.

Catapult X and Arc Capital created STEM Panels, your curated panel of STEM advisors, to help you define the questions and problems your buyers grapple with most.

What are STEM Panels?
STEM Panels convene the brightest minds in education with one goal: to provide data and insights to inform your business decisions. STEM Panels gather either virtually or in person and include a carefully curated panel of educators selected by Catapult X and Arc Capital. Essentially, STEM Panels are your educator advisors for product and market development.

How do STEM Panels Work?
You tell us the types of educators you want on your STEM panel. We get them there.

Really. It is that easy. We developed STEM Panels knowing that Catapult X and Arc Capital have extraordinary contacts with STEM leaders.

The difficult part starts when you show up to listen. Which problems (the first science and engineering practice defined in The Framework on Science Education) do educators grapple with the most? Are you solving those problems in a way that makes teaching and learning better?

You decide
– Do we pitch a new concept to district-level leaders?
– Do we design an exploratory session around problems to solve?
– Do we conduct background research before we invest in a new product line?
