Overview
University of Colorado at Boulder’s PhET Interactive Simulations project creates interactive simulations – based on extensive education research – to increase the effectiveness of teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics worldwide. This grant would enable PhET to significantly advance its impact through creation of next-generation simulations, related teacher professional development resources, and research and technologies to advance effective design and classroom use to support the new Next Generation Science Standards, the Common Core State Standards, and deeper learning. Through this grant, PhET will increase the number of next-generation simulations it provides, enhance the organization’s ability to support improved teaching practices, improve the accessibility of the simulations to all students, increase knowledge about effective simulation design for deeper learning, and move toward a more sustainable long-term business model.

for the long-term impact of access to contraception census project  
This grant to the University of Colorado Boulder will expand a research study to assess the effects of access to the full range of family planning methods on poverty status and economic stability of women and their families. While this question is crucial to policy arguments worldwide, it has rarely been studied with adequate data on the women for whom family planning programs are intended.
