Using WordScientists.org, NEST turns research behind language learning into pedagogical practice to make learning effective for all readers. It’s our hope that we can offer these resources to as many students as possible.
Our pilot schools currently support 50 teachers and over 1,000 ethnically diverse students across schools in Kathmandu, Nepal.
In 2015, a devastating earthquake destroyed much of Kathmandu, including the schools these children attended. Unlike the children in neighboring schools, that didn’t have WordScientists.org, one year later they were reading at international standards.
