Together, we are making a positive impact on our kids' education. We know that hands-on learning engages students, boosts their learning by making meaningful connections to the world around them, and helps them build critical 21st century skills. By supporting teachers with affordable tools and training to effectively embrace hands-on learning with their students, we are helping them inspire the next generation of leaders and innovators.
A recent study on the impact of RAFT's hands-on activities found compelling evidence of increased student learning in math subject areas, as well as a high level of student engagement and demonstration of 21st century skills. View the executive summary of the report.
Fourth grade students were asked to choose from a list of words and phrases the ones that best described their experience with the activity they participated in. The bigger the word, the more frequently it was chosen.
RAFT now has a hands-on project idea for every California K-8 math and science curriculum standard, making it easy, convenient and affordable for teachers to integrate hands-on activities into their everyday teaching. Click below to see our math and science coverage maps.
