Real World Delivered to the Classroom. Nepris virtually connects you with teachers and students matched to your skills and experience, providing an effective way for you and your company to do education outreach.
Although you will find many social aspects to the Nepris platform to connect and inform, there are two main ways to participate:
- Accept a request from a teacher. Educators on our system submit requests for an industry person to speak to their class virtually by filling out an online form. Nepris goes into its database and makes matches between the request and your profile. Each request is usually a class period of time. When a match is made, we will email you for you to consider. There is no obligation to accept every request (we know you have full time jobs and schedules) but if they have time to talk to a class, you sign up and we help you get ready. The opportunities range from simply talking about your career and job, making a connection to how a curriculum topic is applied in practice in your job, talk with students about a project, or even listen to and respond to student presentations.
- Host an industry Chat. You can also host live, interactive sessions for classrooms to join. Industry Chats can be offered throughout the year and sometimes we will recruit professionals for different themes (e.g. Hour of Code, Black History Month, Executive Leadership, etc.). So if you desire to reach the K12 audience (or a subset) with a live session, we'll host and promote the session for you.
