This organization, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, an independent research lab, addresses the challenges of educating children in the face of the changing media landscape. The center’s mission is to conduct original research on emerging education technologies and collaborate with educators and media producers to put this research into action. Program initiatives fall into 3 thematic areas: Games and Learning, Learning Together, and Literacy by 10.
Educators looking for STEM projects for students may be interested in the National STEM video game challenge that motivates youth to build STEM related skills through a common interest in video games.
