Our Story

Seed and Stem Learning Center was created by Bailey Nelson and Kenneth Kirk. As a prior public school science teacher, Bailey experienced the positive difference that scientific inquiry can have on students. Also having an ESL/TESOL endorsement inspired Bailey and Ken to take their love of math and science and create a program that allows students to connect across the globe through STEM education. Although students take classes virtually, they will be inspired through hands-on and real-world applications and problems. Aligned with Common Core Standards, students will develop (or enhance) their love of math, science, and engineering. Teachers and tutors are all vetted and trained through a rigorous process that focuses on scientific inquiry, problem-based learning, and hands-on pedagogy. Teachers come from a variety of backgrounds including education, economics, engineering, and computer science.
