About pop-up education

We are Ashley A. Coates, M.B.A. and Holly E. Freeman, Ph.D..  We partner with education programs to develop hands-on lessons for teaching engineering, science, nature, and art, and test them by “popping up” to teach in the local community.  Lessons are developed for teachers, parents, homeschool, art centers, museums, science centers, environmental & outdoor education programs, and nature centers.  

Our goal is to provide high quality curriculum in subjects sought outside a traditional classroom. We aim to bridge learning gaps in the subjects of science, art, engineering, outdoor skills, and environmental studies.

Lessons are available for purchase through this website.
