We’re committed to solving STEM Education’s most enduring problems
through research, practical tools, and direct work with schools.
Drawing on a diverse team of scientists, teachers, writers, and methodologists, we develop innovative, robust, and practical approaches to STEM education research at PreK–graduate levels.
A leader in the development of school mathematics curricula for decades, UChicago STEM Ed is home to the Everyday Mathematics and UCSMP mathematics curricula. Other pioneering work includes interactive instructional materials, new technologies to support teachers, and tools for computer science education and financial literacy.
In collaboration with school districts, administrators, teachers, and research specialists, we build professional development models to support high-quality STEM instruction in schools throughout the country.
