Penman PR will represent Sapling Learning to promote its online Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning and assessment solutions to the Higher Education marketplace.

Penman PR, Inc., the only public relations firm to offer its clients 100 percent representation by senior-level practitioners, announced that Sapling Learning has selected Penman PR as its public relations agency of record. Penman PR will assist Sapling Learning in promoting its online Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning and assessment solutions to the Higher Education marketplace.

Based in Austin, TX, Sapling Learning’s mission is to provide a comprehensive, affordable online learning platform to college-level science students, while simultaneously offering faculty the freedom to create customized, flexible digital learning solutions for their higher education science courses. Sapling Learning offers cost effective alternatives to traditional textbook purchasing by un-bundling the textbook from supplemental materials, allowing students to purchase used textbooks and Sapling Learning homework and assessment software, dramatically driving down the overall cost of instructional materials. Providing immediate individualized feedback and remediation, Sapling Learning promotes student engagement and comprehension beyond that supported by predominantly multiple-choice driven assessments.

Penman PR will utilize its industry and media expertise to develop and implement a strategic public relations campaign designed to increase visibility and brand awareness for Sapling Learning’s products.

“Penman PR came highly recommended by a business associate,” said Dr. James Caras, president of Sapling Learning. “We are pleased to be working with an agency that provides us senior level representation and attention.”

“American leadership in science and mathematics is vital to our nation’s economic competitiveness and national security,” said Patti D. Hill, founder and managing principal of Penman PR. “With Sapling Learning, students develop critical thinking skills, not just test-taking skills, which help them master complex disciplines such as chemistry and engineering. Penman PR is proud to promote Sapling’s mission to improve science education in the United States."

Penman PR Strategist Kursten Mitchell leads the Sapling Learning account.
