Helping to create a society that can learn, think and innovate

In late 2015, Discovery Education was selected by the government of Egypt as a primary partner for providing dynamic Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) focused educational media content to the Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB) for primary, preparatory and secondary school students and teachers. 

Discovery Education is working with the Specialized Presidential Council for Education and Scientific Research, a direct initiative of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The Egyptian Knowledge Bank [EKB] was launched in January 2016. It is regarded as the biggest digital library in the world, hosting content from prominent publishing houses from across the globe. The EKB offers Egyptian students, teachers and parents huge and diversified sources for knowledge and culture free of charge.

Available to 23 million teachers and students, the Discovery Education – EKB partnership spans across the whole of Egypt.

Discovery Education, as a valued contributor to EKB, is providing Egyptian teachers, parents and students engaging tools to enhance their educational experience. Specifically, we are providing:

  • Access to thousands of educational videos, in both English and Arabic, via an exclusive web portal
  • Hand selected interactive digital resources including video, audio, text articles, images, and interactives that best address the cognitive range of the national curriculum
  • Alignment of hand-selected engaging and dynamic multimedia resources to lessons and units found in the national curriculum with Curriculum ConnectTM.
  • Weekly video programmes in five topics, Maths, STEM Careers, 21st Century Skills, and World Topics on WebEdTV to inspire curiosity and support learning whether you’re at school or at home
  • Extensive professional development training on STEM best practices for principals and teachers recognizing STEM Excellence Centers at the end of the two year training program
