A Deep-Dive into NGSS-Aligned Curricula


Search and Rescue X (SAR-X)

Duration: 4 – 5 Hours
Cost: $1,500 (flat fee)
Group Size: 10 – 15

Milestone C’s SAR-X series of professional development comprise of high-intensity leadership & team-building simulation endorsed by corporate executives.  These are stressful Search and Rescue (SAR) “mission control” simulations that will test the collaborative skills of even the most seasoned teams.

The original program, Pedro-X was created by Milestone C co-founder Cemocan "Gemo" Yesil and premiered at the John F. Welch Leadership Development Center in 2012.  Since then, it has been employed by corporate giants from GE to Bigelow Tea and leading educational institutions with stellar results.

SAR-X immerses participants into "mission control" to plan, brief, execute, and debrief a simulated Search & Rescue mission.  They repeatedly make decisions under pressure, analyze problems, rapidly absorb and communicate information, weigh competing objectives, and witness the results of their actions real-time on a simulated satellite link.

Host organization can select one of two SAR-X scenarios:

  • Pedro-X: A U.S. Air Force Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) exercise

  • Hurricane-X: A civilian disaster-relief exercise in the aftermath of a hurricane (available Fall 2019)

An eye-opening experience for all skill levels that will quickly mold educators and administrators high-performing work teams.  You can watch a Bigelow Tea's endorsement of the program on the right.


Non-Linear Learning

Duration: 2 Hours
Cost: $1,000 (flat fee)
Group Size: Unlimited

Milestone C leaders (all active STEM professionals with Fortune 500 experience) introduce their signature tools & techniques to create genuine hands-on learning environments and teaching 21st century skills. 

The Non-Linear Learning approach focuses on taking advantage of controlled chaos as a highly-effective learning environment in the classroom.  We believe hands-off teaching facilitates hands-on learning, allowing repeated failure but interfering to prevent inaccurate analysis of the failures.

The second half of the program contains hands-on demonstrations of various types of projects that can be implemented in the NGSS-aligned classroom.

The STEM Loop

Duration: 2 Hours
Cost: $1,000 (flat fee)
Group Size: Unlimited

This “teaching 21st century skills” themed program connects STEM educators with a distinguished panel of industry professionals with the following objectives:

  • Close the loop between STEM education and real-world industry demands

  • Open the dialogue between educators and a current industry leaders

Short presentations by panelists flow into an open discussion in the second half, where participants can discuss and explore cutting-edge techniques to bring back to their classrooms.

NGSS Spin-up

Duration: 2 Hours
Cost: $1,000 (flat fee)
Group Size: Unlimited

“Spin-up” offers a deep dive into building curricula and setting up 21st century classrooms aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).  NGSS will impact all schools, school systems, and curriculum development efforts in the very near future.

Milestone C’s curriculum experts will break the new standards down into easily-digestible key points – analyzed from a corporate STEM industry perspective – and demonstrate them for science educators through hands-on examples and an interactive lesson plan activity.
