“E.O. Wilson’s Life on Earth” has launched and it is free!


The book is divided into seven different units. Each can be downloaded to your iPad or Mac for free.

After four years in the making, with a team including E.O. Wilson, leading science writers, biologists, educators, and digital  animators, E.O. Wilson’s Life on Earth has launched! As the Education Director of this project I am very proud of this revolutionary biology textbook, which can now be downloaded from iTunes anywhere in the world for free! 

Many of the Project-Based Learning activities in the 41 chapters of the book feature the innovative students of High Tech High.
