Federal Registry for Educational Excellence (FREE), maintained with support from the U.S. Department of Education, is a repository containing more than 1,600 K-12 teaching and learning resources from the federal government. FREE enables learners and educators to find high quality digital learning resources from federal agencies such as NASA, National Gallery of Art, National Science Foundation, and Smithsonian among others.

FREE is pleased to be an early collaborator in the Learning Registry. In preparation for a complete connection to the Registry, information about a selection of our resources have been placed into the Registry by way of our partner site–Butte County Office of Education’s Brokers of Expertise. We look forward to continuing our collaboration to publish our full set of metadata and to connect with usage data about our FREE site.
