For the United States to continue producing a technologically literate workforce, the public education system must enhance science and mathematics education, especially at the middle and high school levels. To help achieve this goal, Temple University's College of Science and Technology and College of Education have been awarded a grant of up to $2.4 million by the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) to improve secondary teacher education in science and math.
The grant is one of 12 to be awarded by NMSI (www.nationalmathandscience.org) to implement a program modeled after the UTeach program, a highly successful math and science teacher preparation program at the University of Texas at Austin.
