Mission and Vision
There has never been a more important time to focus on science, technology, engineering and math education. We face a looming shortage of skilled STEM workers, a general crisis in STEM literacy and some of humankind’s most pressing challenges. Most critically of all, a great many children face an unconscionable achievement gap, among them girls and Hispanic and African-American youth in particular. But opportunity beckons. With today’s revolutions in science, engineering and technology, the possibilities for transforming education have never been greater.
We imagine a deeply digital future, where teaching and learning seamlessly incorporate the best features of digital technology to dramatically improve education.
At the Concord Consortium, we’re dedicated to bringing out the inner scientist in everyone. In fact, it’s been our work for close to two decades. We focus on discovering, developing and disseminating innovative technology for a new generation of STEM-literate learners, workers and citizens. We create powerful educational tools that make the invisible visible and explorable, including interactive simulations, cutting-edge sensors, innovative assessments and technology-based curricula.
To ignite large-scale improvements in teaching and learning through technology.
Our legacy and background are strong. We developed the nation’s first online high school and birthed a $100M industry in educational probes and sensors. We continue to research innovative approaches across STEM learning, bringing molecular interactions to life, enabling new insight into the process of engineering design, forging new tools for data science education and much much more. And we build on over $70M of past and current National Science Foundation funding, $2.5M in charitable giving from Google, and partnerships with institutions such as Harvard, Berkeley, MIT’s edX, National Geographic, the New York Hall of Science and many more.
We’re creating a brighter STEM future for teaching and learning everywhere. We invite you to join our revolution.
