Our Mission
Plasma’s mission is to equip teachers with rigorous, entertainment quality resources that allow them to engage students, improve learning, and inspire our next generation of STEM leaders. The United States currently ranks 25th in the world in science and 35th in math. This is not sustainable for our economy, our national security, or our students’ future. Plasma is here to help get the United States back on top by strengthening our STEM workforce pipeline. Meet our hardworking team who is making our mission happen!

Marisa Scoville

Curriculum & Integration Specialist
Marisa Scoville knows that teachers have one of the hardest jobs on the planet! After teaching secondary science for 10 years, she joined the team at Plasma with the desire to make teaching a little easier for others by making engaging resources so they don’t have to. She is most excited when she finds out that teachers love our curricular materials and when she is able to get plants to grow with her (not quite) green thumb.

Most likely to make you the absolute best homemade cookies...for your dog. If you sit really well, she might give you one, too.

She joined Plasma Games to combine social learning and storytelling to create engaging lessons for all learners. In between scaffolding lessons, she is either hiking with her dog, or playing a variety of video and board games.

Most likely to corner you to explain all the different types of metal music, and will find the one for you.
