The pK-12 @ Open Learning brings MIT’s unique “Mind and Hand” learning approach beyond the campus to pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 (pK-12) learners and teachers around the world, building upon existing efforts and developing new ones. The pK-12 Group fills a growing need in STEM education by initiating new research, design, and outreach programs that will transform how students learn – and our understanding of how students learn.

MIT has a long and rich tradition of innovation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. This innovation can be readily seen on campus, but this same force has also shaped education off campus. Through classroom technologies, curriculum units, teacher professional development, and learning research, the faculty, staff and students of MIT have sought to improve STEM education broadly beyond campus, with a special emphasis on pre K-12 learning.<
