The EdTech Digest Awards Program annually recognizes outstanding education technology solutions reshaping the education culture and contributing to a new and better future for students. The program recognizes the best products and brightest minds in 50 award categories, which are evaluated by K-12 education industry influencers and veterans.
“All of us at Nepris appreciate being recognized by the EdTech Digest Awards for Nepris’ ability to connect teachers and students with professionals from right next door or from across the globe,” said Sabari Raja, CEO and founder of Nepris. “Nepris has been honored with a number of awards this year and it is gratifying to be recognized for our efforts to bridge the gap between industry and education to inspire students in STEAM.”
With Nepris, teachers request industry experts to explain to their students how they apply classroom learning to real life, or to mentor students on projects, or to evaluate student work. The goal is to excite students about careers in science, engineering, technology, performing arts and math.
By providing an easy-to-access online community of industry experts and teachers, Nepris simplifies the end-to-end process of matching professionals’ skills to teachers’ needs, enabling communication and collaboration, hosting the virtual sessions and tracking all data for every stakeholder. Nepris allows professionals, companies, universities and non-profits to effectively reach out and interact with teachers and their students wherever they are.

Dallas-based Nepris brings STEM to life (and now STEAM, which adds the Arts to science, technology, engineering and mathematics) by connecting professionals with teachers and classrooms who need speakers, project mentors or evaluators for interactive, cloud-based sessions. Nepris makes this a turn-key process: identifying and registering professionals and teachers, matching professionals’ skills to the teachers’ needs, advising on best practices for classroom interaction, hosting the interactive sessions and tracking all the data.
