Welcome to Step Up America Foundation Inc. The Franklin Project!
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember , involve me and I will learn" - Ben Franklin
Children need to be engaged in order to retain information. Educators are tasked with teaching some subjects that are extremely difficult to get our youth to pay attention to. Civics and history can pose that issue.
We created a solution, The Franklin Project. Utilizing today's technology, we developed an avatar of Benjamin Franklin. His job is to interact with students in real time presenting them with required curricula such as the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and eleven other lesson plans.
“The mission of Step Up America Foundation Inc. is to educate our youth on the importance of becoming responsible
We recognize the challenges that educators have in teaching subject matter that may not rate high on a student’s list of favorites. That is why Ben Franklin decided to join the Step Up America Foundation Inc.
Being acutely aware of the tremendous pressures and timelines that our educators are under to teach the required curriculum, The Franklin Project was created with them in mind.
This unique learning experience engages students of all ages. It is an interactive approach to giving our children effective lessons on the importance of our freedoms, our founding documents, and why it is important to be a good citizen.
We are making plans for the next location of our Kids Confidence Challenge.
Check back soon for details and a video of the inaugural event that took place in South Carolina.
Check out our radio show podcast. Some of our guests have included astronauts, music stars, baseball professionals,
