About TELS

Established by the National Science Foundation in 2003 as a national Center for Learning and Teaching, the TELS Community develops instructional programs that use educational technology to help middle school and high school students master complex scientific concepts.

The TELS school districts provide the setting for our research, assessments, and professional development programs. The TELS teachers collaborate on research projects in their district, providing a practitioner's perspective. The teachers participate in our annual summer retreats and organize workshops for other science teachers in their district.
