REEd is a university-based intermediary with deep ties to the TK–12 education community across the state. We are committed to moving research findings into practice and building the capacity of education systems to improve teaching and learning with the goal of reducing education inequities. We do this by testing professional growth systems for building capacity and using research practice partnerships to spread and deepen this work in many districts across the state and beyond.
It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve the families, educators, and clinicians in the greater Sacramento region through our research and clinical services supporting children and adolescents with reading challenges and/or developmental disabilities. We are very sorry to inform you that effective August 20, 2018, the RAD Center will be closed. We will not be enrolling any new families for services, but reading services will continue for our current families until August 17, 2018.
The Center for Applied Policy in Education (CAP-Ed) at UC Davis facilitates the nexus of research, policy, and practice with a commitment to eliminating inequities in schooling and providing learning opportunities for diverse students. CAP-Ed connects education leaders and practitioners with nonpartisan, research-supported information and expertise from scholars and policymakers. Our services and publications foster a thoughtful, well-informed education system in California encompassing policy makers and those implementing policy in schools and districts.
The Center for Community and Citizen Science is a home to programs and partnerships that revolutionize how—and with whom—science gets done. Based on a foundation of research excellence, the Center helps scientists, communities, and citizens collaborate on science to address environmental problems as a part of civic life.
The Beta Lab at UC Davis studies how young people learn and develop through participation in making and the Maker Movement. We investigate the nature of learning that occurs during extended, youth-driven maker projects, and we design learning environments and tools to support learning through making.

With Youth-focused Citizen and Community Science (YCCS), youth contribute to authentic science. They can do this through data collection, but also interpreting or sharing findings. But what does this mean for science learning? To answer this question, we began conducting case studies with YCCS projects in Northern California and bringing together key stakeholders to explore when and how YCCS works best.
