The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced major awards to Boston University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Washington to establish Science of Learning Centers (SLC). The new centers will engage in basic research and serve as hubs for a national network of research focused on learning. The Science of Learning Center based at Boston University is CELEST: Center of Excellence for Learning in Education, Science, and Technology. CELEST brings together leading scientists, educators, and technologists from Boston University, Brandeis University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of Pennsylvania to study real-time autonomous learning systems by integrating experimental and computational brain science, biologically inspired technology, and classroom innovation.
