We provide individual and customized support for teachers to improve the quality of science education in Nevada schools.
We make it easier for teachers to inspire and motivate kids through science, which makes learning reading, writing, math and other subjects fun, while increasing student engagement and returning joy to teaching and learning!
The best part is, we come to YOU. This allows us to completely individualize our programs for you, and we love visiting and serving rural Nevada schools.
Teachers and students benefit from classrooms that are under-control and hands-on learning. We can help you with classroom management strategies and guided lesson planning that results in phenomena-based units that teach to Nevada Academic Content Standards in a fun, engaging and integrated fashion.

Kind Words from Your Fellow Nevadans
As the Principal at Cottonwood Elementary School, I have been fortunate to work with Open Gate Foundation for the last 4 years. Brandolyn and Carolyn have provided our school with exceptional staff development around structuring teacher’s classroom and school wide management to allow for project based learning, and met our specific needs as a school. They have gathered a group of experienced educators to collect data and observe multiple times a year. The feedback received from the professional development and observations has been positive from all staff members. I would highly recommend Open Gate Foundation to support your school or District in professional growth and continued improvement.
Mr. James Huckaby | Principal, Cottonwood Elementary School, Fernley, Nevada
I recently had the pleasure of partnering with Open-Gate Foundation on a needs assessment for Southside Elementary School in Elko, Nevada. Their data collection, analysis, findings and recommendations are made stronger and more meaningful due to Open-Gate's wealth of knowledge pertaining to public school operation and performance standards. I found Open-Gate to be extremely professional and truly motivated to help their clients improve educational outcomes for children.
