The team’s hard work has not gone unnoticed, as the K-8 Science Techbook has recently been honored with two awards — a CODiE Award and a Silver Edison Award. The CODiE Awards, presented by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), recognize excellence in business software, digital content and education technology industries, and the Techbook won in the Best Science/Health Instructional Solution category this week. Last month, the Discovery Education K-8 Science Techbook also was recognized with a Silver Edison Award in the Curriculum/Educational Programs category. The Edison Awards honor the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, and the Award is a testament to the innovative approach Discovery Education is taking to digital learning.

Congratulations to our Education colleagues and we can’t wait to share news of more game-changing tools and resources!
