SciMathMN advocates for effective, engaging and rigorous science, technology, engineering and mathematics education opportunities for all Minnesota students, preparing them for citizenship, career, and college.
Our major initiatives include:
- Minnesota STEM Teacher Center – a highly successful award-winning online resource for teachers, administrators, and parents which provides teaching tools for each of Minnesota’s math and science standards;
- Minnesota STEM Network – a five-year old grassroots initiative to form a community of practice among STEM stakeholders in the state to work toward common goals of STEM awareness, quality teaching and learning, and increased interest in the STEM workforce.
- Policymaker Briefings – inform legislators and other stakeholders about regional and national developments in quality STEM teaching and learning; and
- TIMSS analysis – the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study compares performance of Minnesota students to students around the world. SciMathMN coordinates the data analysis and dissemination of results.
