Welcome to Step Up America Foundation 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: A Call To Good Citizenship 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 Step Up America Foundation.
Being acutely aware of the tremendous pressures and timelines that our educators are under to teach required curriculum's, 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.
