Practicing What We Teach


Collaboration Icon - Round.png

Collaborations with students, families, supporters, and STEM professionals help RDL produce specialized, meaningful, artistic, relevant, and timely materials. Thank you for helping us make SMART content and curriculum.


Communication Icon - Round 2.png

RDL works with universities and researchers to boost science communication so that k-12 students can benefit more from innovations and new discoveries. We also design broader impact plans to get science into our communities.

Right to Education Icon - Round.png
Education is a Right Not a Privilege

From underfunded k-12 programs to racial and economic segregation, millions of students are denied a full education. At RDL we are increasing access to educational materials by donating one Active-Book for every one that is purchased. 

Give Away Best Icon - Round.png
Give Your Best Away For Free

The best way to learn is by doing, and we think everyone should have the opportunity to learn by doing. This is why every week you will find new projects, experiments, or activities on our website available for FREE download.

 Support Educators, Artists & Makers

At RDL we love the teachers, artists, and makers who inspire students to learn and discover more. This is why part of our mission is providing them with curriculum development jobs rather than asking them to volunteer their already overburdened time.
