NEW YORK, NY—July 28, 2011— NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, announced today that it will donate licenses to its “NBC Learn K-12” resource to all Delaware High Schools for the 2011-2012 school year.

“NBC Learn’s dynamic learning videos and content help Delaware classrooms come alive,” said Dr. Lillian Lowery, Delaware's Secretary of Education. “We’re delighted that our high school students can now access these engaging resources.”

“We thrilled to grow our relationship with the Delaware Department of Education by extending access to NBC Learn’s learning resources to all high schools across the state,” said Soraya Gage, Executive Producer of NBC Learn. “We hope that Delaware teachers, students and their parents get inspired by the historic stories, images and primary source documents from the rich NBC News archives, and take advantage of this resource both in and outside of the classroom.”

I love the "Chemistry of..." series, which will help my students see the connections between class topics normal things in their lives. I also look forward to accessing files of current science events," said Sue Gleason, a high school teacher in Appoquinimink School District. “What a great resource to keep students aware of the world around them.”
