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.
Igniting STEM Education in Rural Communities
Rural schools have struggled to deliver high-quality STEM opportunities for students. EDC is working to change that.
Tools to Support Preschool Learning
New resources support educators on integrating technology and working with emergent bilingual learners.
Artificial Intelligence Is Coming. What Does That Mean for Us?

A Voice for Elementary Science
To better prepare students, science learning should start in elementary school.
Reigniting Elementary Science Education
“For too long, students have been given too little time for science,” says Abigail Jurist Levy. “We can’t afford that any longer.”
Expanding the Boundaries in STEM
Improving access to STEM careers isn’t just a matter of social justice—it also drives innovation, says EDC’s Sarita Pillai.
