Our History

The Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center (SILC) was first established in 2006 as part of the Science of Learning Centers program funded by the NSF which ended in September of 2017, and transitioned to a Northwestern University Research Center.

The following material, “SILC Final Report”,  gives a broad overview of the activities from 2006-18 and reflects the origins of SILC, along with past key initiatives and faculty members. As SILC continues to evolve, our goal remains the same, “We aim to understand and enhance the teaching, learning, and practice of topics that require reasoning about spatial information.”
