Discovery Education has gotten several new updates and is now the NEW Discovery Education Experience. We have several one-hour webinar sessions (via ZOOM) scheduled for you to get more information about all the new and improved resources DEX has to offer. These sessions are listed in our ESC Works workshop catalog, as well as the flyer linked below. There are multiple LIVE sessions on each topic over the course of the next month. If you cannot attend the live session at the scheduled times, feel free to register for one of the sessions anyway. We will send out a recording link from the live session so that you may watch at your convenience. Click the image to open the virtual flyer. Sessions are linked to the registration page by the Session #.

Also, included in your DEX subscription is Mystery Science. Discovery is working on getting all of those accounts activated, so please be patient as they are working hard to get that information to you.
