Undergraduate Student Partners

Since 2007, >25 undergraduates have contributed to various projects as content authors, copy editors, artists, coders, video creators, and reviewers. Several hundred students at 6 institutions have field tested our technology platform and resources. They grounded our thinking about what students and teachers need, contributed innumerable new ideas and insights, and challenged us to think differently.

The students below have given an exceptional amount of time and energy to various projects. We appreciate their contributions, which were vital to our success.
