The science and engineering behind ACE

ACE’s practical approach is based not only on our intuition and experience as educators, but on a principled scientific approach to learning. We strive to be as open as possible to allow other educators to build on our success. To this end, we publish scientific articles, open source our software for use by the community, and release our curriculum for wide-scale use.
