Sharing the Knowledge
The Denoyer-Geppert was formed some time around 1916. Formerly, the products were mainly maps and globes, and science education was a small part of the company's offerings. In fact, the Denoyer-Geppert "Cartograph" Globe is what made the name famous because they were featured in photographs with the Apollo astronauts throughout the 1960s.
By the 1980s Denoyer-Geppert was a division of a large educational publishing conglomerate. The division's assets were sold to Rand McNally in the mid-1980s. The science education products became what is known today as Denoyer-Geppert Science Company.
Throughout the 1990s the company acquired additional science education assets in the chemistry and kinesiology disciplines. In the twenty-first century the company has partnered with many science educators to develop innovative learning tools.
