Hedberg Consulting works with both the public and private sectors to improve science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in the U.S. and internationally. The firm specializes in building strong corporate-education partnerships between educators, business leaders, science and engineering academies, government agencies, higher education and advocacy groups. It helps to strategically plan, implement, evaluate and propagate systemic reform in STEM education and policy. Systemic education involves both the public and the private sectors as active partners in educational initiatives. This includes everyone from parents and teachers to informal learning institutions, corporations and advocacy groups.

A strong talent pipeline and marketplace are essential for economic prosperity. Hedberg Consulting's model for change is based on building bridges between leaders and stakeholders who hold the keys to revamping our educational system. Today's students are tomorrow's workforce. Workforce development and preparation start with students, teachers and future employers. Every one of these people benefit from the advancement of STEM education.

Hedberg Consulting accomplishes those objectives by establishing shared ownership of aggressive goals and objectives for improving student achievement and talent preparation. The firm helps inspire student interest in STEM and in becoming skilled and dedicated professionals in the STEM workforce. At the same time students are transformed into citizens who are educated users of STEM products and services. Hedberg Consulting brings specialized skills, experience, and dedicated program development to these community partnerships, delivering added value to all parties involved.

For example, his RxeSEARCH program, which is offered under the aegis of the National Science Resources Center (NSRC), brought high school students into close contact with an active R&D environment and the practice of reality-based problem solving.

Far younger students also have participated in Dr. Hedberg's programs. BLAST PreK encourages preschool children to actively explore their world rather than simply be passive recipients of stories and pictures presented by their teacher. Dr. Hedberg's approach prepares these youngsters to become active learners through inquiry in the K-12 classroom.
