Innovative & Engaging Learning Methods for Your Child

S.A.T.E.C. in San Antonio, Texas offers technology-enhanced math and science lessons created by award-winning instructors. We use collaborative approaches and engaging tools for a positive hands-on experience.

Our Philosophy

Technology enhances mathematics and science learning, supports effective teaching, and influences what content is taught.  A wide range of technologies serve as tools to engage students with real-world problem solving, conceptual development, and critical thinking.

(The above statement is a combination of philosophies stated by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Science Teachers Association.)

IT IS THE PHILOSOPY OF SATEC THAT ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN! PERIOD!

We believe that teachers should:
1.  Provide high quality instruction for all students.
2. Have high standards and expectations for all students.
3. Provide support to help students achieve and never change successful        students to unsuccessful students.

We support integrating technology into instruction to help fulfill our beliefs.

The Advantages of Technology-Driven Education

Engaging

Students actively participate in lessons and projects which leads to better student learning. They are more willing to experiment because technology makes tedious tasks more enjoyable.

Efficient

Calculators, computers, data collection probes and sensors along with image (whether a photo or video) analysis software are essential tools for both teaching and learning. Through the integration of technology into the curriculum, basic learning can lead to concrete real world experiences.

Empowering

Technology enhances content learning, supports effective content teaching, and influences what content is taught.

  • All SATEC produced science lesson materials at no additional charge as well as any resources in the “for purchase” section of the Teacher Resources page.

Additional Value for Choosing a Subscription Option

  • The school may have two of the “for purchase” power point presentations for use in professional development.
  • The school will receive a 10% reduction in cost for a consultant to provide staff development for the campus. This would help pay for the annual subscription cost.

Other Subscription Information

  • Schools are divided into these categories for subscription purposes: K-5, 6-8, 9-12.  Request pricing information if your campus does not fit into one of these groups.
  • A School buying both math and science subscriptions will be given a discount for the purchase of a combination package.
  • A District may also buy a subscription and the cost will be negotiated with the final cost depending on the services requested, the number of schools and grade levels involved. We suggest that choosing a district option would bring savings to the district in costs of materials, science equipment, and professional development that can potentially pay for the cost of the subscription.
