STEM.org is the leading and exclusive third-party validator of STEM toys, games and other learning resources. Each product credential is now cryptographically-secured and retailers like Staples, Inc. are using the terminology STEM.org Authenticated™ on their websites under the specifications tab. Retailers and distributors are also utilizing STEM.org’s unique STEM ID#’s to organize and classify STEM products.
On the 6th anniversary of our team’s issuance of the world’s first STEM certification, we transferred the first-ever STEM credential into the blockchain on May 31st, 2018 (DLT ID #578411/STEM ID #11594446). Basic photo editing software or copier skills allows anyone to duplicate a paper certificate. STEM.org Educational Research™ automatically submits each credential instantly into the blockchain which creates a permanent record that is impossible to change or alter. Our system cryptographically seals a record of all achievements, resulting in the ability for third parties to verify with absolute certainty that a record has not been falsely created once issued. This industry-pioneering, methodology eliminates fraud and technologically ensures the credibility of our trustmarks.
Working with STEM.org to achieve authentication for the original Botley and Botley 2.0 was such a pleasure. They value research-driven, hands-on learning and collaboration, and so does our organization. They've been a real champion of Botley from the very beginning and have assisted us with the development of a series of popular lessons to accompany it, along with several of our other best-selling products.
We knew we wanted Moving Creations with K'NEX to stand out, and STEM.org really helped us distinguish our product from others—while validating our work in STEM education. We appreciate STEM.org’s independent review process and sense of partnership. They have helped promote our products on social media and in publications like Forbes and Newsweek. The STEM.org Authenticated™ trustmark works beautifully on our retail sites, packaging and marketing materials.
Working with STEM.org has been an incredibly positive experience. Not only are they a world class educational research organization, but their support has exceeded all of my expectations. Our Gridopolis Game was unique to the marketplace, but CEO Andrew B. Raupp saw its potential immediately. He worked with us closely through the authorization process. Later, he and his team supported us further with marketing and promotional initiatives.
Since we’ve partnered with STEM.org to evaluate our magnetic children’s toys, our knowledge about STEM education has grown immensely. The team provides affordable, practical insights drawing from their years of experience to identify market trends which has helped us better identify a path forward. Since earning the authentication trustmark, our customers have taken notice which has led to increased marketshare.
