Orange, TX (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
Ten years ago a biology teacher from Orange, Texas created a program she called the Science Starters in an attempt to raise her school's test scores. The program was a success, and word quickly spread. In the years since, Kathy Reeves has retired from teaching to focus on her company, Scientific Minds, and to grow the Science Starters into a successful educational product. Now the company is moving from Orange to Austin.
Reeves sees Austin as "a strong and supportive business climate with a large and highly skilled pool of talent. The city has also become a hub of tech innovation and provides the perfect environment for a growing technology company."
As Scientific Minds has grown, its products have evolved to meet the needs of a changing market. Scientific Minds first met success with a research-based process that helped hundreds of Texas schools teach state science standards and improve test scores. Since then, the program has grown to include highly effective supplemental science programs for grades 3-12 that meet the standards and assessments of all states as well as the newly released Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
In addition, Scientific Minds has published an agriscience product called MC2 (Mastering Core Content) in Agriculture that teaches math and science within the agriculture curriculum.
With many states moving to end-of-course assessments, the web-based Biology Starters and Chemistry Starters are being used by thousands of teachers and students as an engaging tool that makes science relevant. All of the Science Starter programs effectively use technology and graphics to help students build neural connections and retain what they learn.
With a well-rounded group of comprehensive science products under its belt, Scientific Minds is eager to discover new and exciting uses for technology in education and is looking forward to the energy of the high-tech Austin climate. The company offers a free 7-day trial for each of its Science Starters products at http://www.ScientificMinds.com.
