SAN FRANCISCO—June 14, 2016—The national community college reform network Achieving the Dream (ATD) today announced the largest initiative of its kind to develop degree programs using high quality open educational resources (OER). The initiative—which involves 38 community colleges in 13 states (see attached list of participating colleges)—is designed to help remove financial roadblocks that can derail students’ progress and to spur other changes...

Students in grades 6-12 are invited to attend a free Solar Science Camp on July 18-22 at our Concord, MA, office! They'll learn to use a CAD tool to build a 3D model of their house; design rooftop solar panel arrays; optimize their design for best cost-effectiveness; and author a solar assessment report. More details available at http://concord.org/sites/default/files/pdf/solar-science-camp-2016.pdf

The Supporting Secondary Students in Building External Models project, funded by the National Science Foundation, is researching how the use of a systems dynamics tool to construct external models helps students to build robust conceptual frameworks. We are developing a new web-based systems modeling tool called SageModeler to facilitate model development.

Happy Birthday Nettie Stevens! Today Google honors a scientist whose work led to the XY sex-determination system, now taught in classrooms around the world. Students can learn about X and Y chromosomes and much more using our game-like dragon genetics software. Learn more at https://concord.org/teaching-genetics/dragons

Join us at ISTE 2016 in Denver! Learn about a free, visually engaging web-based app that invites students to explore and evaluate their local watershed using real data and a scientifically valid watershed model. Plus learn how our Sensing Science project allows K-2 students to interact with their assumptions and reflect on their actions.

Our multi-talented research associate/project coordinator Natalya St. Clair has illustrated a new book by author Jonathan Kane and published by Springer. Writing Proofs in Analysis teaches how to write proofs by describing what students should be thinking about when faced with writing a proof.

A new article appears in the May issue of the Journal of Geoscience Education, featuring the Transforming Remotely Conducted Research through Ethnography, Education, and Rapidly Evolving Technologies (TREET) project. We describe eight undergraduate students' experiences conducting ocean science research using telepresence, and lessons learned about the promise and challenges of using telepresence to engage undergraduate students in authentic research.

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.
