Learning Blade for Remote Learning
 
Dear SC Educators,
 
You should have received an email from State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman and OCTE Director Angel Malone that was a  memo to school leadership announcing that they are providing your school a license to the Learning Blade Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) career awareness system for use with remote learning and beyond.
 
Learning Blade is a system of interactive online lessons and printable at-home activities for 5th to 9th graders, where students learn about STEM and Computer Science careers while reviewing academics. Students can use over 400 online lessons in 12 human-centered "Missions" or stories to explore these exciting careers.  
 
Questions about Learning Blade can be directed to info@learningblade.com 
 
Thank you.
Now that summer is approaching and more and more people are staying home, what plans do you have for your summer? Right now is the perfect time to get trained and certified in IT and MOS, and we can help you, and best of all, right now, it's free.
