Zoom in on DNA Day! Our five Next-Generation Molecular Workbench interactives cover transcription, translation, mutations and more! Try them now and be ready for DNA Day on April 25.
Molecular Workbench is one of the most versatile ways to experience the science of atoms and molecules, and now it works in web browsers.

We’re designing and testing interdisciplinary instructional materials to support all high school students in developing understanding of electrical forces and energy involved in interactions at the microscopic level. We're also presenting findings from our two-year study on young children's preconceptions of the nature of temperature and heat and how visual representations can improve these phenomena. Learn more at AERA today.

Paul Horwitz describes his latest work teaching teamwork in electronics with students at Tidewater Community College.
Teamwork is increasingly valued in the world of science where advances are rarely made by the proverbial lone genius working in the shadows.

It’s Monday -- time for a Monday’s Lesson from the spring issue of @Concord! Students learn about interpolation with this free Graph Literacy activity available on our website or as an app for the iPad.
Graphs are powerful tools for visualizing data, but too often students are unable to gain insights from them.

Meet the students and scientists who are using telepresence to undertake ocean science research from thousands of miles away.
In September of 2014, the E/V Nautilus set sail to collect data and explore research sites in the Caribbean.

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.
