Technology Innovation Engages The Masses

The Formula a mathematical recipe for scientifically discovering, creating and selling technology on a world stage. In the world of technology, it is known as an incubator. To reach all k12 students, with a particular focus on traditionally undeserved populations that make up less than 1% of all technology employment throughout the US and remain far outside the technology innovation ecosystem, The Formula is part entrepreneurship and part engineering, It’s called E-STEM and we at Bandit Publishing have been pioneering this genre of STEM for the past 10 years to perfection. This mixture of entrepreneurship and engineering engages students with the promise of success in career beyond their wildest career dreams as visionary technology leaders, C level executives and powerful titans of industry.
Students learn to use engineering tools, methods and best practices to not only engineer ANY and ALL products, but also to engineer corporations as machines. This mixture of engineering and entrepreneurship from an engineering viewpoint is proprietary brand of E-STEM we call The Formula. Our mission is to democratize STEM and engineering for the masses of students who believe technology and innovation serve no purpose in their academic lives and is beyond their academic capabilities.

Combining Engineering & Entrepreneurship To Create Intense Student Engagement 

In line with the UDL (Universal Design for Learning) Model, The Formula first engages its students completely, ensuring teachers can successful teach their eager student effectively 

Engineering & Entrepreneurship Intersecting In The Maker-Space of Technology Innovation

The Formula was designed for schools to take advantage of the multitude of cognitive and non cognitive outcomes of business administration, financial literacy, engineering and technology related fields of study. Schools receive the program as a year long technology based interdisciplinary curriculum equipped with teacher training and ongoing support to build technology capacity within schools. The tool is in line with and in most instances, exceeding technology, financial literacy, STEM and economic national teaching standards like the NGSS (Next Generation Science Teaching Standards) and the CCR (Common Core Teaching Standards). The Formula is designed for students grade levels 5 – 12 with varying pedagogy. The Formula as a yearlong curriculum is a carefully formulated mixture of math, science, and engineering designed to enlighten students as to how these disciplines are synthesized and utilized in career by the most powerful technology corporations in the world, producing billions of dollars in revenue. The Formula is a mathematical engineering based incubator that will take your students on an exciting career filled journey exploring everything from scientific discovery to engineering design to product creation to international technology CEO and back again. 
As 21st Century learning does not happen effectively in a silo, The Formula’s mathematical, engineering and scientific applications stretch into the fields of financial literacy, marketing, investment, economics and business administration, providing its students with a leadership worthy world career perspective, vision and skill set on a company wide scale. In addition to developing mastery on a technological front, executive functioning, cognitive and non-cognitive interdisciplinary outcomes grow stronger with each lesson and module. The curriculum gives students a highly engaging academic platform to improve critical soft skills across the ALL the disciplines, while at the same time mastering 95% of the 21st Century outcomes needed for success in college and leadership in career.
  • "The Formula is an out of the box business, marketing, STEM or entrepreneurial career cluster curriculum, but it can also be used to upgrade any career cluster with appropriate rigor, innovative relevance and pedagogy, so vocational students are equipped for the competitive challenges waiting for them in the 21st Century."

     

    Ann Plancher – Deputy of Education

  • “To test the program, I had (4) students read the book before I actually purchased the program. The class had a long discussion about the pros and cons of capitalism during which even the most reticent students were deeply engaged. They said, “This book is about capitalism Ms. Ummi. So if you want to be successful in a capitalist society, you have to read this book.” After hearing their feedback, I read the book myself and realized, it was something I needed for myself. Instituting this program on the junior high school level, would have made reaching students at the high school level, a lot easier.”

     

    Ummi Modeste, MSEd City-as-Schools-High-School

  • "As a technology educator who works with middle and high school students to prepare them for success in college, I know the most important skills for students to master moving into 2020 are not just about math, reading and writing, but the non-cognitive skills like innovation, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. Reading The Formula was eye opening, as it broke the innovation thought process into digestible pieces, so easy to understand, a child could innovate. We used it for our summer program and it was a big hit with the students."

     

    Mr. Stanley Brown – Director -- Science Technology Entry Programs – Medger Evers College

  • “After being trained on how to teach The Formula in the classroom, and seeing first-hand how it changed the mentality of the students in a matter of weeks, I would recommend every student be exposed to it. It’s the perfect mixture of career readiness, technology, math and academic engagement. Even the chronically disengaged students loved it!!!”

       

    Ms. Thelusma --- Math Teacher

  • “I have read the book myself and I have to agree, this formula is a truly revolutionary tool. If we can get the youth of today to understand the way this formula creates the success they desire, they will adjust their behavior and make different choices on their own, making our jobs as educators, a lot easier.

         

    Dr. Renee Butler – Assistant Dean Student Affairs – LaGuardia Community College

  • As a design engineer, The Formula is the sum total simplified methodology of my research and development team. It helped even me understand what we do in our department on a daily basis. In my mind, it is a pre-requisite for all engineering students.

       

    Mathew Pina – Manufacturing Engineer

  • “The remarkable thing about this formula is in the way they have re-invented Abraham Maslow’s theory of needs in a way, students can see valuations in daily life. It puts them right in the heart and soul of the international economic landscape instantly in a way they can compete and defend themselves at a high level. This is an absolute must have for all students, regardless of their background. The earlier they get it, the better!”

       

    Cornell Green.. Technology Consultant & 21st Century Educator

     
  • “The Formula is an excellent way of preparing a young marketing executive for what they will need to know in a fast paced competitive marketing environment. It’s sales & marketing uncut and in a nutshell.”    

    Angela Dilemme - VP of Marketing

  • “If I had the chance to go back in time, I would have wanted someone to sit me down and explain engineering and how I would apply it later in my professional life, the way The Formula does. Had I gotten this sort of preparation in grade school, only God knows where I would be today? It’s basically the essentials of the design engineering mindset, presented in a way, you don’t have to be an engineer to use. ”    

    Alton Mathews -- Quality Control Engineer

  • “Creating a technological disruptive innovation is always at the forefront of my mind. Every technology entrepreneur I know, lives to invent at least one in their lifetime because ANY venture capitalist will give your company millions of dollars in funding to bring it to market. The Formula is our mindset and agenda presented in a way anyone can dream up an idea for a disruptive innovation, not just us engineers.”

       

    Brian Waltermire --- CEO   ---- Asgard Managed Services

  • "I purchased The Formula only because I worked as a software compliance engineering, and what I used daily to do my job successfully, is interwoven inside the pedagogy of The Formula. I saw it as a way to give all my students exposure to STEM instead of just the top students in the school. It was honestly a refresher for me. This is authentic engineering approach consistent with all engineering disciplines. It is sorely needed in today’s public schools, and I personally have never seen anything like it in education."  

    Jason Forde -- Head of School Planning & Strategic Partnerships

  • "I purchased the program for my seniors as a graduation present. I didn’t want them to go off into the real world unprepared. I wish I’d given it to them sooner!"  

    Wayne Coxs --- Principal -- Wings Academy

     
  • “As an educator with a personal affinity to financial literacy and entrepreneurship, as soon as I saw the way the program explained valuation, I knew its perspective was superior to what we were currently using. I knew it would give direction and put education in perspective for all my students.”  

    Shawn Farnum -- High School Principal

  • “I didn’t realize it until I read the book, but every successful person you hear speak on TV, has the word value on the tip of their tongue. Finance people who buy and sell stocks, make billions each year and the main tool of their trade is value. Warren Buffet, the 2nd richest man on earth is known of all things as a “Value Investor.” It’s almost like this value thing was hidden in plain site from all of us. Mr. Powell is the only one I’ve ever heard talk about it, and I’m not sure why. It’s the reason I purchased the books for my students. There is no career readiness, without an understanding of how to create and sell value.

  • “The Formula's explanation of valuation is the core of my decision making when buying and selling stocks every day. It’s a cheat sheet or the cliff notes on financial speculation and investment.”
