Our Story

Aecern started as an oceanographer’s passion project to deliver easy ways for kids to learn together with science data and observations. With the support of programs with the Office of the Navy, East Bay Education Collaborative of Rhode Island, Jason Learning, and Lloyd Center for the Environment we have continued to develop a versatile learning platform for K-12 classrooms.

Aecern participated in the ninth incubator cohort of 4pt0 Schools.

Our Philosophy

At Aecern we are driven to explore everything. We approach science and engineering education as career scientists with a deep understanding of the authentic practices and daily critical thinking skills necessary to solve real problems.

Our vision is an educational system where teachers have the time and tools to grow comfortable with open inquiry and transition to support discovery-based learning, so that all types of students become future problem-solvers.
