Brief Program Description

English language learners (ELs) and students with learning disabilities (SWLDs) have the potential to offer valuable insights into solving the world's scientific problems, but as a whole they continue to experience a science literacy gap and are marginalized in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. Project ESCOLAR addressed this inequity by creating online middle school science units to meet the special needs of ELs and SWLDs while providing an engaging web-based learning experience for all students.
