40% of graduates are testing below basic proficiency levels in the USA yet more and more jobs in our 21st century knowledge based economy require a practical understanding of science and technology. As a result science education is now a national priority but neglect and recent budget cuts in 34 states have made updating hands on laboratories too costly for schools. For a fraction of the cost in resources and teacher time we provide users access to the most up to date and age appropriate science hardware and software. Tools that students will encounter if they pursue science at the next level. Our product will enforce learning objectives through individual control of and access to repetition of experiments and also by providing teachers with monitoring tools to help them target limited classroom time. Our primary markets for this will be domestic and international secondary and post secondary schools as well as traditional text bookdigital content providers. We will be first-to-market with this platform with 3 years of development ahead of competitors. Given the high cost of entry this lead is significant due to the variety of expertise needed to deal with the necessary backend software technology as well as the automation of the hardware. Our fully developed user interface will be proprietary. To bring our product to market we will pursue relationships with large scale well established education content providers as well as leverage our existing relationships with a well cultivated potential client list that includes several state boards of and international ministries of education. We will also direct market to teachers who attend the conferences of professional organizations like The National Science Teacher s Association. These conferences gather potential users who are the most passionate about their students achievement and well being.
