CASTLE stands in solidarity with the movement to dismantle systemic racism and promote equity and inclusivity. As a community, we are reflecting on our work, ways we can continue to learn about these issues, and how to increase our active support of others in their learning about these issues. We are also committing to additional actions to promote inclusivity within academia and STEM education specifically. #BlackLivesMatter

Transitioning to Online Teaching

In response to the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, Drexel has transitioned courses to an online format for the start of the Spring Term. In order to support faculty and staff with this work, we have collected and organized a set of resources that we think may be helpful with this transition. The information can be found under the PEDAGOGICAL RESOURCES tab of the Castle website ( We hope you find these resources useful and if you have any others you think belong on our list, please share them with us at

Who We Are

We are scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and educators. We are Drexel community members, and we are members of the Philadelphia community. Above all, we are citizens. We understand that a successful society is dependent on an educated citizenry, and we know the importance of evidence-based education.
