Penn began working with West Philadelphia’s Henry C. Lea School in the 1960s. Today, groups across Penn – including GSE, the Netter Center for Community Partnerships, and Penn Science Across the Ages – operate 23 different school day and after-school programs at Lea. At the start of the 2013-14 school year, Penn deepened its commitment to Lea with an expanded partnership.
Founded by Drs. Janine Remillard and Caroline Ebby in 2009, the Community-Based Mathematics Project of Philadelphia (CBMP) is a group of Penn GSE faculty and students who partner with middle school teachers to design context-rich mathematics curricula that are relevant to the lives of Philadelphia’s students.
Penn recently supported the launch of the Philadelphia-based Education Design Studio, Inc. (EDSi), a hybrid incubator and seed fund specifically focused on nurturing edtech startups and connecting them with education research. Startups chosen to participate in EDSi – some of whom are Philadelphia educators and entrepreneurs – are selected from the annual Milken-Penn GSE Education Business Plan Competition for their viability and capacity to connect research to real-world innovations.
