AfterEd is one of numerous activities created by EdLab, a research, design, and development unit at TC, which aims to interest students and teachers in using the technology infrastructure for PK-16 education in the post-industrial, information-based era.
EdLab also provides a limited number of free summer internships on software development, media design, video production, publishing, and research activities for students and teachers. It also covers these topics through consulting and planning services, multimedia events, seminars, and professional development activities for school teachers and administrators. Costs for these activities vary, and EdLab helps with grant applications where necessary.
