To help children from urban centers experience nature, EDC, PBS Kids, and WGBH Boston teamed up to create Plum Landing, a toolkit that includes hands-on activities and videos for six- to nine-year-olds.
EDC has been awarded a contract from the government of Burkina Faso to support early childhood development and build the capacity of the government to offer high-quality early learning as part of the Project to Improve Access to Quality Education (PAAQE).
EDC’s Deborah Schifter was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame for Mathematics Educators by the Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Massachusetts (ATMIM), an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
EDC founder and MIT physics professor Jerrold Zacharias and his colleagues formed the Physical Science Study Committee in 1956 to improve physics learning in high school. As author Robin Kazmier writes, they started a revolution that changed the way science is taught in classrooms today.
