Our goals are to improve teaching and learning in the STEM disciplines for students from grades K-16 through research and development efforts.   We bring together STEM faculty and faculty from the College of Education, and serve as a springboard and a hub for innovation, research, and intellectual collaboration, and help bring to fruition ideas and projects that will make a difference in the teaching and learning of science and mathematics for all learners regardless of their cultures or experiences.
