Encourage Students to Engage with your STEM Education Partners.

  • Showcase: Show off local STEM Education organizations: planetariums, libraries, science museums, zoos, nature centers, etc.
  • Rewards: Raffle off prizes to students who attend the most STEM education sessions.
  • Events: Advertise timely events like curated tours and classes. List hours for after school programs.
  • Up to Date: Unlike printed maps, Map Buddy can be updated in case of closings or newly introduced programs.

Easy to Maintain

Nobody wants another system to manage.
We'll do the hard work so you can focus on your students.


We'll import your partners

We'll take your partner data from whatever system you're currently using and import it into Map Buddy.


We'll update your partners

We'll keep your partner data up to date as well, whether it be a few small updates a month or an automated system to continuously import updates.


One map for everything

Embed a Map Buddy map in your website so that you don't need to manage two separate partner directories.

We'll work with you to get you the features you need and to fit within your budget.
