Not all students have a high-quality STEM education, which can limit their post-secondary learning and career options. EDC works to improve the quality, effectiveness, and equity of STEM learning and teaching, giving all students a solid foundation in computer science and creating pathways to STEM careers for students from underrepresented groups, students from low-income families, and English learners.
We develop STEM curricula, digital games, and apps that engage, excite, and challenge students, aiming to foster and use technology for robust STEM experiences. And through national resource centers and collaborative research, we guide STEM research and program design.
This brief describes the importance of expanding access to computer science (CS) learning and details EDC’s work to ensure all students have high-quality CS educations.
This guide helps school districts choose the computer science (CS) curricula that best suit their communities’ needs.
