Here's some adorable fun from one of our software developers: Sam Fentress. Sam created a setup using +Makey Makey such that each time he and his daughter touch, they connect a circuit which simulates a piano key press.

We’re thrilled to be participating in +Google Summer of Code (GSoC) for the fourth year running! Two international students will spend the summer coding for our open source projects. Through GSoC, they’ll earn stipends from Google, plus get a coveted GSoC t-shirt and certificate. Concord Consortium developers will provide mentorship.

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).

Air Quality Awareness Week ends today, but it's not too late to explore the question, will the air be clean enough to breathe? This High-Adventure Science module guides you through the analysis of models and real-world data as you explore the interaction of factors affecting a region's air quality.

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.
