Carnegie Learning Announces Strategic Alliance with Smithsonian

Carnegie Learning, Inc., a research-proven leader of mathematics technology, curriculum and services, has announced a strategic alliance with the Smithsonian Institution. The Smithsonian has long been a leading developer of research-based science and engineering curriculum through its Smithsonian Science Education Center, which was established in 1985 to help transform the teaching and learning of science in the United States and throughout the world.

The alliance helps support Carnegie Learning in its mission to prepare students for success in the future economy. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, employment in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) occupations grew much faster than employment in non-STEM occupations over the last decade (24.4 percent versus 4.0 percent, respectively), and STEM occupations are projected to grow by 8.9 percent from 2014 to 2024.1 Yet as of 2016, the U.S. had roughly 3 million more STEM jobs available than it had skilled workers to fill them.2

Both organizations believe in inquiry-based learning for building 21st century skills, and have spent years conducting research to develop and constantly improve learning solutions that are proven to be effective. Each brings a unique expertise to STEM education: Carnegie Learning, with a focus on math and adaptive technology, and the Smithsonian Science Education Center, with a focus on science and engineering.

“We are committed to building the next generation of STEM leaders,” says Barry Malkin, CEO of Carnegie Learning. “We’ve spent more than 20 years perfecting our adaptive learning technology for mathematics. Now, as we begin to work with the Smithsonian Institution, we can together re-imagine STEM education to better prepare these future leaders.”
