making hands-on learning happen 

by transforming ordinary materials into extraordinary learning experiences

Raft facilitates hands-on learning for kids by empowering those who make it happen. We reuse and recycle attribute-rich materials to provide student-centered content and professional learning opportunities for formal and informal educators, ultimately helping to develop critical problem-solving skills in students Pre-K through 5th grade.
