PAST is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to making education better by promoting transdisciplinary, problem-based STEM learning. The challenge, though, is that “better” is different for everyone. We see this challenge as an opportunity.PAST approaches educational improvement from an anthropological perspective. That is, PAST brings a uniquely powerful tool to system design: anthropology. Collectively, PAST anthropologists have over a hundred years of experience studying the complex structure of societies and their interactions, and use this expertise to understand clients’ needs.
