The Center is a collaboration of ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Education, and Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering. ASU’s Office of the Provost and Office of the Vice President for Research & Economic Affairs also provide critical support. Grants from the National Science Foundation and other federal sources, the Arizona Board of Regents, and corporations and foundations support much of CRESMET’s work. Arizona Initiative in Math & Science Education (AZIMASE) Teacher Recruitment & Preparation Provide public-private partnerships for science, math and engineering professionals to transition into teaching Require prospective middle school teachers to complete a “minor concentration” in at least one subject and require more knowledge of math, science, and engineering for all elementary and middle school teachers Teacher Professional Development Accelerate the in-service teacher professional development Develop state-funded and required program of sustained research-based professional development for math and science teachers in all Arizona school districts Institute new incentives for math and science teachers Public Education Create public education campaigns to attract students to science, math and engineering majors and careers in teaching Mathematicians & Scientists Engage more mathematicians and scientists in curriculum development, teacher professional development, and mentoring of students Accelerated Magnet Academies Establish year-round residential Arizona Math & Science Magnet Academy for talented students at each of the state’s four-year public universities Counseling Support school counselors with information and tools to encourage students to take more math and science and consider science and technology careers.
