Students are diving in to our Water SCIENCE project!
Water isn’t an abundant resource, but now kids in the Kyrene School District may be better prepared to protect it in the future thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation and a summer program that taught kids the ins and outs of being a water engineer.

We're helping kids reach for the stars with simulations.
Bring to your mind any of the iconic successes of the US space program: walking the surface of the moon, the repair of the Hubble Space Telescope, and

We're proud to announce that the award-winning Fathom software widely used for data exploration and analysis in grades 8–14 is now available at reduced prices — from just $5.25 per copy (or less for multiple copies), a savings of up to 40%! Represent data quickly in a variety of graphs, build simulations to illuminate probability concepts, plot functions and vary values dynamically, and more!
Fathom is dynamic software that's fun and effective for teaching data analysis and statistics. It's also a powerful tool for high school students to use for modeling with mathematics, as required by the Common Core State Standards. In addition to helping students understand algebra, ...

Check out this article about local high school prodigy Cole Winstanley and our very own Paul Horwitz!
You may have heard the expression “too cool for school.”There might be a new one that describes a Concord-Carlisle High School student

Join our team! We have an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher specializing in learning analytics and design-based research in STEM education. This is a one-year full-time position with the possibility of extension. This is a great opportunity to contribute to a hot new research area while working with some very cool people (if we do say so ourselves).

Earth systems and environmental topics are an intricate blend of science, policy, economics and human impacts. We must help students understand the complexities. Read how our High-Adventure Science project addresses this issue in the latest issue of the Teachers Clearinghouse for Science and Society. Link below. Also, former Concord Consortium Senior Research Scientist Andy Zucker reviews Naomi Klein’s book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate on page 22.

Our own Jie Chao and Arlington High School teachers and students are interviewed by Arlington Public News about using Energy3D in the classroom. Energy3D helps students learn about energy efficiency, and ways to create houses that consume less energy than they produce http://energy.concord.org/energy3d

Revolutionary Digital Learning for Science, Math, and Engineering
Introduction
We're a nonprofit educational research and development organization based in Concord, Massachusetts. Our pioneering work brings the promise of technology into a reality for education in science, math and engineering.

We have a diverse group of innovators who are truly amazing. They are collaborative, creative, and fully dedicated to our core mission. And they combine bucketloads of disciplinary knowledge, educational experience, and technological expertise in marvelous ways, all in the name of showing educational technology's true potential to the world.

Our mission is to stimulate large-scale, technology-based improvements in teaching and learning. Education is the single most important investment a society can make in its future. Quality education is essential to help people everywhere realize their full potential. But education needs enormous changes if it is to deliver on this promise. Its huge size, vested interests, and outmoded traditions prevent change.
