We ignite students, educators, schools and communities
– Our Origin –
Wildfire Education emerged from Hawken School’s Miller Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies Educators Program.
We are a separate non-profit organization formed in 2017 due to the explosive growth of Hawken’s Educators Program and the increasing global demand for our services in entrepreneurship and problem-based education.
“The Korda Method is an excellent turnkey solution for educators [that makes] teachers feel confident taking risks in their curriculum that combines content with building 21st century skills, not only because the methodology has proven successful, but because the training and support materials lead teachers every step of the way.”
Gabrielle Russomagno, Germantown Academy’s Director of Innovation
WE TRAIN EDUCATORS
We have trained hundreds of public and private school educators to develop their own entrepreneurship and problem-based programs. They are successfully implementing this model in a variety of K-12 courses such as entrepreneurship, science, humanities, engineering, technology and global studies.
