A South Dakota-based company that makes digital science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and computer science curriculum materials will give 200 middle and high schools across the southeast U.S. free access to its platform for two years, thanks to a pact with the private for-profit Full Sail University in Florida.

STEM Fuse announced the partnership in a news release today, promising to grant licenses to schools in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and most counties in Florida. Access to STEM Fuse will connect educators with learning materials, assignments and quizzes for their students, along with training and staff development. The service also includes a college counseling feature to assist students as they navigate the next phase of their academic career, it said.

“Through our partnership with STEM Fuse, we’re able to help make STEM knowledge and curriculum more broadly accessible, which we hope will inspire the next generation of future technologists,” Full Sail University’s Education Director of Emerging Technologies Haifa Maamar said in a public statement.

STEM Fuse provides a plethora of courses for K-12 that can be run for semesters or throughout the entire school year, according to its website. In addition to STEM integration, the company also has courses in computer science, IT and multimedia, robotics and circuitry, and career and technical education, all of which can be implemented on a school campus or in a virtual classroom setting, the website said.

Full Sail University said in its news release that it is dedicated to exploring the potential of emerging technologies, with this partnership being the university’s second this year. In January, the university announced a partnership with Xencelabs to provide computer animation and gaming students with tablets.
