EDC Earth Science is an initiative between the Oceans of Data Institute and the Learning and Teaching Division at the Education Development Center (EDC). For more than 50 years, EDC has been a leader in efforts to solve a wide range of educational, health, and social problems and is recognized for the high quality of its program and product development, research, technical assistance, and professional and organizational development.
EDC Earth Science is designed around the belief that students are capable of rigorous and in-depth explorations in science when given adequate support, structure, and motivation for learning. Students perform data-intensive investigations set in real-world contexts and engage in a variety of activities that build critical data-using skills.
