"Having System's Education at 66th Street School has been an amazing experience for the students and 5th grade teachers at our inner-city school. The students were able to engage first hand in experiments and observations that will enhance and advance their knowledge and engagement with science.
Thank you Mr. Nash and Ms O'Conner for you dedication and professionalism to the discipline."

"If you want your students to experience a high-quality, hands-on, standards-based science program, then SySTEM's Education is the program for you! The lessons include direct instruction, hands-on activities, and check for understanding through questioning and a science notebook. Our student cheer every time they hear that Mr. Nash is coming!"
"The science test had concepts that were taught from the program. My students were knowledgeable in those questions. Overall, it did also have harder concepts that made the students put in all their knowledge from what they had learned in the program.
The program at 66th street was an extraordinary opportunity for students to be engaged in the science curriculum. Their lessons were taught in a very organized manner as well as the activities that followed for each. Each lesson was aligned with the new "Next Generation" standards and implemented ways in where students were able to learn. This program gave an opportunity for students to learn many of the science concepts, as well as the vocabulary. Students were able to discuss the concepts using the vocabulary at the end of each lesson. Students were always exited to go to science and learn new concepts each time. Not only was this program aligned to the standards, but it made science fun and easy for students to learn the concepts. Overall, this program has all of the qualities a program for students should have."

“Once a week my students await with enthusiasm for Mr. Nash to walk through our classroom door. Mr. Nash has a true understanding of how my students learn most effectively and best of all makes it enjoyable.”
- Esperanza De La Torre
5th Grade Teacher
“Every week my students eagerly await Thursday’s Science class with Mr. Nash because he engages them in culturally relevant, hands-on activities that generate residual learning that students can apply in their own independent investigations. Any student who gets to learn from Mr. Nash is a lucky one!”

“Our school instituted the STEM program for the last few years and it has been a great help and a wonderful learning experience for my students. Mr. Nash was our STEM teacher from August to the beginning of February, 2016. His lessons were thorough and fun, making them a memorable experience for the students. He used technology and encouraged active participation on the part of the students.”
