Hi there!
I'm Nicole VanTassel

I am the founder and CEO of iExploreScience. What began as a passion-fueled venture into curriculum development evolved into a lifelong mission to provide high quality, flexible professional development to teachers struggling to transition to three dimensional instruction with the NGSS. iExplore Academy was created to fill the gap that currently exists between the adoption of three dimensional state standards and the implementation of these standards in the classroom.
