In this age of constant discovery, we need scientifically literate citizens who can meet the world’s environmental, economic, and societal challenges. To increase scientific literacy, EDC draws upon inquiry-based approaches that deepen understanding of science concepts and build data literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Within schools—as well as beyond schools in informal settings, the policy arena, adult education, higher education, and the research community—we advance new ways to enhance science learning and close achievement gaps in science.
