Mission Statement

By Partnering Anthropology with Science and Technology, we invite the world to design, construct, and engage in experiences that link learning to life.

Description

"PAST is an organization dedicated to making education better by promoting transdisciplinary, problem-based STEM learning. The challenge, though, is that "better" is different for everyone. We see this challenge as an opportunity. PAST approaches educational improvement from an anthropological perspective. That is, PAST brings a uniquely powerful tool to system design: anthropology. Collectively, PAST anthropologists have over a hundred years studying a complex structure of societies and their interactions, and use this expertise to understand our partners' needs. The combination of anthropology and STEM is a powerful one. PAST has guided entire feeder systems in their transitions to STEM learning to see remarkable improvement in a few short years. PAST has partnered with educational organizations and communities around the country, and has helped them streamline their processes to reach more students with fewer resources."
