The Michigan Mathematics and Science Centers Network is pleased to be working with many organizations to provide instructional support and professional development in all STEM areas.
Family Engineering invites educators, engineers, university science and engineering students, community youth leaders, and parents to inspire the next generation of critical thinkers and problem solvers with exciting, hands-on activities and events for elementary-aged children and adults.
The GIS/T Resources and Applications for Career Education (GRACE) project is building upon a recent successful NSF-funded project that developed a model of geographic information systems and technology (GIS/T) based education. The objective is to prepare youth in economically disadvantaged communities for the prospect of careers in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The GRACE project seeks to bring this program to a large number of students and teachers in grades 8-12 across the State of Michigan.
The Michigan Department of Education has supported many of the programs and professional development that have been implemented by the Network.
The Michigan's Integrated Mathematics Initiative (Mi)2 assists the state in creating a cohesive and collaborative system of support and professional development among existing mathematics resources. The initiative identifies and promotes factors that facilitate improved outcomes for all students in mathematics.
The Next Generation Science Exemplar System (NGSX) is a web-based PD environment designed to engage teachers in working with the practices and disciplinary core ideas in the National Research Council's Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards.
