The Wonderment is a global community that promotes awareness and action as youth explore the world around them. Young people submit their ideas for community-improvement projects to the site, and with each submission a “Wondermeter” rises higher. Once the Wondermeter reaches the top, an outside donor will fund the latest user-chosen project—for example, a water-sanitation project in a developing country. Through the site, youth can take their compassion and caring for others and crowdsource community-improvement projects around the world.
In the summer of 2017, Open Up Resources released a problem-based core mathprogram for grades 6–8 to spark student engagement. The full OER-based curriculum is a result of a 21st Century Collaboration Model: the core materials were developed by recognized math education experts and then classroom tested and modified by 175 classroom teachers in six school districts.
Cignition aims to break the summer-slide trend through an online fantasy world called Fog Stone Isle, which helps students retain the difficult math concepts encountered during the school year through crafting activities during the summer months.
