In newly-funded work led by Babette Moeller (at left), EDC will serve as the research partner for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) KC (Kinetic City) Empower initiative. Developed by AAAS with support from the National Science Foundation, Kinetic City is a large collection of online science experiments, games, and projects. The purpose of KC Empower is to improve the accessibility of informal science education for Grade 3–5 students with disabilities. Drawing on resources from Kinetic City, the project will design and test five afterschool science activities that integrate technology and universal design for learning.
