Battelle Education is a national leader in transforming the promise of STEM education into practice. Every day, in classrooms across the country, our work helps to prepare students for what’s next. A nonprofit venture of Battelle, Battelle Education has a lengthy track record of developing, delivering and partnering in the development of successful STEM schools and networks across the country.

Battelle Education has developed a network of trainers that have reached more than 1,000 educators. The Battelle Education trainers are primarily classroom teachers or administrators working in schools that are implementing LDC.

Schools in Ohio’s first piloted the Literacy Design Collaborative in 2012. To help more schools implement the method, Battelle Education developed a training series where these early-adopters could serve as lead resources for other schools. Most recently, the Ohio Department of Education issued new support to the program to train up to 120 more teachers in 2015.
STEM teachers trained on the tools have also worked with Battelle Education to share the LDC tools to teams in Texas, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, Idaho, and Pennsylvania.
